    What other tricep exercises do you do? The second half of Chest/Tris day for me is:
    -Wide dips
    -Skullcrushers (superset) Close grip bench
    -cable pushdowns

    Dips are by far my favourite and for me the most effective too

    As well as doing dips and skull crushers, which are great tricep exercises, do a reverse grip extension movement to emphasize the medial head of the tricep.

    Work your triceps. You can't shape them, the shape you have is what you got. That's it. You can either add muscle or remove muscle.

    First good answer, [rep on rc]

    You have to build the muscle, then burn the fat over the top, when you reach 7% body fat, youll be able to see your triceps clearly, and whatevers there is what you got, you can only make it bigger and smaller

    from someone who has striated triceps
    all i can tell you is focus on heavy pressing/ dips twice a week, and throw in a few (only 2-3) isolation sets of something like push downs at the end of your workout 1-2x a week. Work them hard, but dont over work them.

    Heavy bench press one day + heavy dips + Floor press(optional) 1 isolation exercise 1-3 sets
    heavy OHP another day + light bw dips + CGBP+ 1 isolation exercise 1-3 sets

    >Skullcrushers

    Everyone always says to do skullcrushers but they're not even that great imo. The mechanics of it sucks because as you approach the top of the movement there is far less resistance and not to mention people tend to use horrible form when doing them. Stick to the top 4 exercises I posted, maybe throw in some cable stuff, every once in a while if you really absolutely need it (which you probably don't).
