    Tricep Toning/Size

    I believe that the biggest problem with my body is my triceps, which aren't that bad but i want to get them bigger, if not more toned . I'm not exactly a small guy, so my arms have fat on them, i'm working on decreasing fat overall but at the same time, i see dudes in the gym who look like they could be playing the line in the NFL, just fat as hell but their triceps are cut as hell . I regularly work my triceps once or maybe twice a week by doing skullcrushers, pulldowns, overhead extensions, and even started reverse-close grip benching, along with tricep pushups and dips . What i wanna know is how do i get that cut in the upper tricep and shoulder(almost a mirror image to the upper bicep and shoulder) and how can i get my tri's bigger ? Because what i seem to be doing is not working, i don't feel anywhere near sore after i workout like i do when i do chest and abs .
    If you don't like something, change it . If you can't change it, change your attitude .

    I think the true meaning of wisdom is the difference between knowing when to act on impulse and knowing when to restrain yourself, and then knowing when each applies to a given situation .

    This:
    -Hit your triceps just as hard as you do any other muscle group.
    -Do tricep-isolating exercises like: kickbacks, skull-crushers, ROPE pull downs
    -When you do exercises like CG bench, overhead extensions, and reverse CG bench go heavy weight with 4-8 reps. I have found this puts on size for your triceps.
    -EAT.

    My tris are one of my best body parts. I never did CGBP. I always stuck to rope pushdowns and I credit that for adding the most mass to my tris. I always did 8-15 reps and would include lots of drop sets and sets to failure. Dips are also one of my favorites for adding tricep mass, weighted dips are a good finisher.

    Dont use the word "tone" on these forums.
    Need a bit of change for sups? This is what I use, and its totally legit.

    If you don't like something, change it . If you can't change it, change your attitude .

    I think the true meaning of wisdom is the difference between knowing when to act on impulse and knowing when to restrain yourself, and then knowing when each applies to a given situation .

    **** reverse grip bench press, too easy to lose grip, espicially at heavier weights. It is not any more efficient than any other tricep exercise.

    Fat loss. Plus each tricep exercise will hit each head a little more than the others. For instance close grip bench will wrok the lateral head more, while skullcrushers or extensions will work the long and medial(i think thats what its called) head more than the lateral.

    The definition is gonna come with fat loss, but I find it really helps to flex the muscles constantly. Doing this has brought out more definition in my legs and tris.
