    need an excercise to wake up my triceps

    I cant feel them anymore, i dont know why , no matter how many sets i do or how much i squeeze the feeling isnt there anymore
    I cant do dips anymore bcs my collar bone starts feeling uncomfortable pressure during/after workout and idk why
    i cant do anything overhead as it puts my shoulders in a position where i hear them cracking afterwards and then i have to take a week break to heal that
    any other excercise i tried with the cable doesnt seem to work, not even the close grip bench that should be hitting triceps directly .
    is there a way to fix this or am i stuck with this 4ever

    Hearing your shoulders cracking is not a problem if there is no pain.

    Try lying tricep extensions where you extend the dumbbell or bar behind your head. Also try tricep pushdowns using two rope attachments so you can get a full range of motion with peak contraction behind your body.

    Step 1. Good form which means full rom.

    As for exercises, (weighted) dips, close grip bench press for size.
    Tricep cable push downs, skullcrushers, dumbbell extensions behind the neck.
    Flex the tricep each time your arm stretches at the end of the rep.

    edit: since you can't do dips or overhead exercises, focus on heavy close grip bench and cable push downs. Skull crushers if you can do them without injury.
    Train triceps twice a week.

    To reduce cracking, warm up your shoulders more and also stretch before and after a work out. Or sometimes a light stretch between sets. Work on your mobility.

    Are you leaning forward much during dips? This puts more pressure on your collarbone and actually starts working your chest more. If so, try to stay more vertical and maybe it'll relieve the pressure and focus more on your tris.

    If you're already doing them vertical, ignore.

    It's impossible to do an exercises like cg bench without hammering your triceps, regardless of what you feel

    I think a tricep movement that allows them to stretch would help greatly.
    The one mentioned above,the two DB tricep extension where you arms come back stretching then move arms forward to a point not quite straight(upper arms at a slight angle back)and extend the lower arms.
    This also keeps tension on the triceps so they aren't resting at the top point.

    It's better to keep your arms out diagonally.

    Decline skull crushers, bigger effective range of motion and smoother tension than any free weight tricep exercise I know of.

    floor press with close grip is a beast and it still works your chest considerably
    Finally back to track.
    Still cannot SQ/DL.
