Working the long head of the triceps

I knew standing triceps extensions train the long head of the triceps, but someone recently told me skullcrushers behind the head train them as well. Can anyone confirm? What other exercises train the long head of the triceps?

Mixing Chest and Shoulder. Best way to have it done?

Don't judge. I'm still doing pecs + shoulder this Friday regardless anyone's opinion of splitting them. I might do around 4 pressing exercises for that day, including a couple of raises and flys to earn balance. Approx. 8 exercises all in. I just need you to suggest me on what would you do...

Sharp Back Pain during Squats

I got a sharp back pain doing squats when lifting with a trainer. I was doing more reps than usual. I think my form might have been bad and I was leaning forward too much. I am 6'3" and have a long back. I almost dropped the weights it was so bad.

Sumo vs. Conventional Deadlift

Would you say it's fine to either ONLY do conventional or ONLY sumo deadlifts? Basically why I'm asking is because for me personally I find a bit of a wider stance and closer grip (Not full-on sumo stance but a kind've inbetween) is more comfortable and somehow it helps me activate my lower back...

New way of benching feels great for me

Hi, Today I found out that when I lower the bar to about 10 cm (+/- 4 inches) above my chest, it feels a LOT better for my chest and most importantly, shoulders. I feel zero pain and that's the point my arms can go to naturally, without weights forcing my arms down. It's kind of the same...

Question No mass in the inner chest

I've been working out for about 5 to 6 months and my chest development is extremly strange. I have great mass on the outer side and it feels full but when it comes to the inside it's like there's nothing there, almost flat. Now before you say it's muscle insertions, it's not because when I flex I...

I keep on hearing that after age 25, building muscle is a lot more difficult than when you are younger. But to what extent is that true? Thanks.

Uneven pushups?

Dumb bells for chest instead of Barbell?

I always workout alone now and I always seem to push it a little to much to get that last rep so I switched over to dumb bells Will it not build my chest as well? I'd say it's my most lagging body part besides arms and abs. I started doing cable flys too.

Deadlift question

Hi, Was doing deadlifts today at my max weight. On one rep, I felt a sting in my abdomen, kind of a pinch on my way up. I have read about people getting hernias, so I was just wondering if there was something wrong with my technique. Any advice would be appreciated.
