I've been doing dips by extending my legs on my couch and having my hands on my bench sliding my butt off the bench and dipping down and up. This has been by far the most effective workout for my triceps. Nothing else I've done even comes close.
The problem I'm running into now is that I'm up to 200 pounds on my lap and it's becoming a bit unsafe. I'll have 4-35lbs weights, 2-25lbs weights, and then a 10.
I was seeing if anyone has found a more effective way of doing this exercise then what I'm currently doing.
Calibrated Sand Bags to the weight you want them. (full of sand and rocks maybe?) ,100 lb plates ,if your plates are Olympic ones you can get one of those trap bars an it will be stable on your lap...

Hmm I looked up trap bars Im not sure how safe I would feel balancing that on my lap. You did give me an idea with a dumb bells though. I think I can put my leg in between two and have weights on top and bottom just not so sure I can dip low enough. Will see I'll have to test it out maybe get on a higher surface.
I found this one at walmart. I really don't have the room in my apartment for this but whatever. All I do is eat sleep and workout here.

You can add weight with a dip belt (can make them for around $10), locking a dumbbell between your legs, or even something as simple as putting on a backpack with some weights or other objects inside to add resistance.
Close grip bench press. Put as much weight as you want on there...
