    Elbow Problems....Skullcrushers

    A couple of days ago I decided to try something I saw a guy post on another board.
    1st this is to be noted. I have very strong triceps. Last Xmas I tore two tendons on the left elbow. One above and one below from doing heavy Skullcrushers. I still have problems with that elbow which effects all pushing movements. Mon while working chest, I thought I'd try his tricept exercise. Here it is. Grab an Ez curl bar with some lightweight added. Now this movement is kinda like a skullcrusher. the diff is your gonna take a close grip on the easy bar and press it like a close grip bench. Once fully extended bring the bar straight back with arms extended towards the back of you. Now drop the weight down towards your forehead like a skullcrusher and then back to the middle of the chest, and then back up to a benchpress. Hope that makes since. Just keep going. Today my tri's still hurt from this. I thought i was getting everything from Bar dips, close grip bench, reverse grip bench and pushdowns. No comparison. It didn't hurt my left elbow at all and it worked

    Give em a shot. hell it took almost all the stress of my elbows. Just do the negitive part of the exercise slowly. Anyways doing it to fast could result in one hell of a headache
