    tricepts

    yeah another tricepts thread.
    when i workout how do i isolate the outside part of my tricept, sorry i don't know the technical name, i do closed grip bench, pushdowns, and skull crushers. afterwards i can feel the tightness in my inner tricept but not the outer. is the outer part getting worked even though i dont' feel anything or is there a way i can isolate it better?

    I use a cable line with the rope extention. pull down on the rope and when you reach the bottom twist your writst so they from facing each other to facing out and then twist them back and slowly go back up try this and see if it helps any.

    The tricep is the antagonist muscle to the bicep, responsable for the extension of the arm. It has 3 different heads that all do the same thing.

    i'm sorry i can't spell.

    ok just checking, I wanted to make sure I was getting all the angles in or whatever, but if they all do the same then I'm good with my workout I guess.

    thanks.
