I did skull crushers for the first time today and experienced something odd (odd for me maybe not for most of you). It was my first time so i made sure to work extremely slow and made sure i was controlled with perfect form, well i obviously did something wrong. I kept the same exact position on both sides but i really only felt it working my left tricep and not only did it not work my right tricep i feel like it aggrivated some muscle (upper lat/reardelt area) which cut my skull set short, someone have some suggestions as to what went wrong?

probably your left is lagging ... is your right arm dominant? I noticed that when I started doing them.. my right was pushing it up quicker and the left was lagging behind it a bit.. maybe ur problem.. maybe not just my .02

Depends on your form, what did it look like?
My guess on the shoulder thing would be that you were allowing that shoulder to rotate as the weight came down so that you were bringing it into the lift, which also might explain the right tricep not getting worked well because the shoulder was assisting it.
Also, if you were trying to force your elbows to stay in that can put unneeded pressure on the shoulders, as well as take away from the effectiveness of the lift.

Ya the more i've looked into it between now and my first post all i can think of was just an error in form somewhere, thought i had it down but hey we all make mistakes. Gonna look into it a bit more and see what i come up with, hopefully my next tri workout will be better.
