tricep help

whats up guys, new to this forum, usually spend all my time on the steroid and testosterone forum. Anyway, my body is almost the way I want it except for my triceps. I am taking juice, eaating and training correctly, they just dont grow. I train them 1x a week like everything else. I usually do 3 exercises then 3 sets of dips or push ups after the 3 exercises. The 3 exercises are... behind the head dumbell press, one handed tri curls and push downs. That is usually my routine sometimes I switch it up but that is usually it. I go for 5-9 reps, 3 sets each one. Any information to help these suckers grow?

    I would do dips 5x5 alongside either close grip bench 3x8 or skullcrushers 3x8.

    Sometimes less is more!!

    this is my routine at the moment -

    Deadlifts - progressive singles
    Chins 3x5
    Biceps curl 3x8


    Bench press 5x5
    Dips 5x5



    Squat 5x5
    Military press 5x5
    Abs


    Simple as that and I can honestly say its worked a treat for me for about 6 months or so now. The only thing that I have changed is that im now using a thick bar on all the exercises. Strength has improved considerably.

    I cant think of any better exercise for forearms and traps than thick bar deadlifts! Thick bar weighted chins help a lot too.

    I train for strength so I dont tackle calves.

    Yes I am getting bigger but my main aim is strength. If I concentrated more on my diet then Im confident that the gains in size would match the strength gains that I have made.

    The workouts vary in length. I dont really time them mate, but i do take a hell of long time inbetween sets as I lift as heavy as I possibly can. Sometimes 5 mins or more inbetween sets.

    Not taking anything yet, but who knows, maybe in the future.

    I'd second that.. Though I'd be more tempted to do 3x5 or 3x6 and go heavier on the close grip and skulls. If you can go that heavy that is after weighted dips. Maybe just the skulls or CG bench alone would do it, but then I'm natural.

    i would start off with 5x5 weighted bar dips, this kicks them into growing. then do a couple of extra exercises to finish them off

    yes, sometimes less is more. i've been doing less exercises but when i do exercises, i put everything i've got into them and i am starting to get better results out of what i'm doing.

    skull crushers - lay on a bench bar in hand i prefer an EZ bar takes the weight outa my wrists keep elbows pointing 90 degrees all you are moving is the bar to your forhead or behind your head start off with very light weight so as to get the movement right and its probably best to use a spotter cos if you drop it on ya head its gunna hurt:)HD...

    Should start your tricep routine off with the exercise you can do the most weight on i.e. close grip bench. Do 3 sets of 8. Next either skull crushers or pushdowns. 3 sets of 8.

    If I were you I would then leave it at that.
