    hey could we all analize the tricep exersizes and wut heads they stimulate...im a tri' guy i luv my triceps, i cant get enough...

    lateral head is the one outside ur arm, the medial is hidden inside ur arm like near the elbow, and the long head is the biggest one under ur arm and up ur armpit

    lets get rolling:
    examening each exersize

    pressdowns stimulate the lateral. if u do ur press downs with ur hands close together than u work more of the bulb of the head, when they are further apart (sholder widthish) then u work the length of it, down to the elbow.

    reverse pressdowns work the medial alot

    overhead extentions, bar/ DB, work the long head cuz it streches it.

    my question is wut about:
    dips (bench dips too, dont be baised)
    french presses (skullcrushers)
    and close-grip presses.

    im not too sure wut these work?



    kick backs seem to work lateral, but even more when u pronate.

    could we start discussiing?

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I work triceps every 7 days..

    I have used many diff exercises in my time,.

    I have to say that ALL of them just pumped up my triceps and in no way did I feel any particular head pumped only..

    Iver the last few months I have settled on using narrow grip bench press only..

    wut i meant wus which gets the most stimulus?

    extentions do the long head, pressdowns get most of the lateral...

    You can't isolate different parts of muscles, you *may* be able to emphasize different parts based on EMG tests (which may not even be reliable themselves), but neither in theory or practice has anyone been able to change their muscle shape wirthout surgery.

    come on guys go easy on the prince.
    he's obviously new here and hasn't had the opportunity like some of us to listen to everyone argue with each other on countless posts over the pasts several months about muscle isolation.

    But I know... this topic gets boring after a while.
