    High Tricep Insertions - Any way to train to elongate?

    I know this is retarded to even ask...but I have high insertions for both bicep and tricep...bicep is good though I get a great peak.

    When it comes to triceps, however, I swear to you that it looks like I have no tricep from the middle of my arm to my elbow. I have rather big beefy triis up top near my shoulder, and as you trail down the arm they come to nonexistence...we're talking in a t-shirt I don't lift if someone was to judge me off of where the shirt cuts off.

    I've heard that doing underhand single-arm cable pulldowns might help? Or am I stuck with this forever and only way I can get better is to continue increasing overall tricep size?

    Before you ask, I do the Holy Trinity for Triceps.

    CGBP, Dips, Skulls.

    I'm not aware that this will help, but it can't hurt to try. Insertions/origins can't be altered, but you certainly can build overall mass.

    ........... to continue increasing overall tricep size?
    ^^^^This is your best plan of attack. Just work to build overall mass, and let genetics take it from there.

    You're pretty much doing everything you should be doing.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.
