    Lets talk about triceps

    What exercises are the best for increasing tricep strength ? I busted my elbow doing fat bar low incline CGBP and cant do anykind of skullcrusher or french press. Need something to rotate for ME days

    Most bang for the buck for me is flat CGBP against a medium band, also incline CGBP but they kill my right elbow.

    For compound movements I usually stick to CGBP and CG incline. I also enjoy neutral grip dumbbell bench with the dumbbells touching. Although the ROM is small, I feel like I get in a lot of good inner pec and tricep work. As far as accessory lifts, I usually go with seated overhead tricep extensions (DB or EZ bar), standing tricep extensions w/ a variety of bars/attachments, and skullcrushers. My favorite though would have to be standing tricep extensions vs bands--I like the challenge of squeezing out a few reps at the bottom part of the lift when the band tension gets high.

    Sounds like everything will kill your elbow right now. I would stick with rehab right now. High suspension pressing, 3+ boards, and high rep band work like panora press may be it

    Triceps extensions with a band I'm finding are great on my elbow when it starts to play up. Easy on the initiation of the movement but nice resistance on the lockout.

    I like band pushdowns, keep your hands in a "hammer curl" position and don't let your hands touch each other on the way down. You can use a thick band, like an Onyx for heavier low rep work and a weaker band for explosive higher rep work

    Also "tricep death" with a close grip. You'll need your training partner here-- We do this sometimes as a finisher.
    Start with 0 boards and do five reps. Have you partner immediately throw on 1 board. 5 reps. 2 boards, 5 reps, 3 boards, 5 reps. And so on, up to 5 boards.
    Then, immediatley, back down-- 4 boards, 5 reps, 3 boards, 5 reps, etc back down to no board. Keep track of the weight you use and try to get stronger/ or faster next time you do it. Prepare for your arms to feel terrible though.

    I was thinking if OP can CGBP against a band without pain, he'll probably be able to do CG Tri Death with a responsible weight. He'll ultimately have to go by what it feels like though

    If you have a football bar I would try out JM press with it and see how it feels. It's hard to know what a "busted up elbow" is exactly, but I know some people that have had success with it
