I wanna know what exercise would build the medial head of the tricep that sticks out and makes you look big from the front, cuz when i work tri's my entire back of my arm ll the way down to my elbow puffs out with no bulging muscle sticking out. I think its pure genetics for the ones that have the medial tri to stick out and the entire back of your arm cuz it doesnt look muscular at all

Try Close grip bench press or skull crushers. These are two of the best tricep exercises that can be done, or dips. Dont forget you get a great tricep workout when you do chest, so maybe you need to reevaluate your routine...post it up..Pain is just a state of mind.

I'm not sure of the name (please tell me), but put the balls of your feet on one bench, and the palms of your hands on another bench with fingers around the edge facing the other bench and do dips that way. Have someone put plates on your legs while you do the dips. This workout gives such a full nice tricep. For added killer, point your elbows directly backwards instead of out to the side. Doing this will isolate the inner tricep, from the shoulder down to the elbow, I think its the long head.
That's my favourite workout.

Unfortunately you may not be able to do anything about that, it is you body shape. Different people shape differently. For tricep exercises see this site:
I would go for close grip and skulls
