Tricep workout

Right, today I started properly on my routine and started a journal(not an online one yet). I was working my chest and tris today. Basically, I did my chest exercises and then I did Cable pushdowns for triceps. My last exercise was skull crushers. I came to do em, so I used a low weight. It was too hard to keep form with that so I figured the weight was too heavy plus I asked advice of a fellow gym member. I went to look for a lower weight and that was the lowest weight they had on the Barbells. Usually there is lower at other gyms, but they didnt have any at mine. SO I didnt know what to do. I was thinking of doing skull crushers with dumbells(tricep extension) - working each arm separately. Would that suffice? If not what should I do instead that is as effective? Cheers in advance!

    Skull crushers are a good mass builder sothem first while fresher and stronger.... that way the heavier weight should be fine.

    I do that next time then... Hopefully it'll work. My triceps get pounded from doing chest work.

    I always like to finish off my tricep routine with either weight bench dips or regular dips! My triceps are ready to explode after a few sets of those babies!
