    Hen:

    Which query was that? I think the two best tricep movements are dips and close grip bench. Skull crushers are a good isolation movement, but not as productive as dips or close grip bench in my experience.

    I've also seen very few people develop elbow problems with dips and close grip bench; however, I've seen many people experience elbow issues with skull crushers.

    Frankie, relating to this thread, are skull crushers a decent sub if close grip bench is off limits? Because of a rotator cuff injury - unrelated to weight training - I can't do close grip presses because they happen to hit the weak spot in my RC just so. i did weighted dips in my last 5x5 cycle and wanted to switch for variety.

    Could you do a partial close grip bench press? Bringing the bar down to say 4-5 inches from your chest? I've been doing that as a bench assistance exercise, its great coz you can really load op the barbell.

    i guess i could give it a shot, although my doc recommends staying away from the bench for a few weeks .. maybe i'll try it with some low weights and see how it feels .. thanks

    blacklab:

    In your case, yes. But if you experience any new shoulder or elbow problems, eliminating skullcrushers would be the first thing I'd look at.
