    skulls and your tris

    been getting a pain in the inside part of my elbow when i come down with the bar over my head, its not a bad pain but it's enough to make me feel ify about skull crushers, what shouldi sub in their place, i still do DB overhead ext. with no problems and nothing else gives me problems except for skulls and im not too big of a fan of close-grip bench... dips maybe what do you guys think, im looking for something that will gives as much results as skulls...

    I'd rest till it healed completely those things tend to get unfixable the longer they go..

    When I get pain from SK's, I use the close grip bench presses as that's the best alternative for mass. I actually like close grips better for mass, then come SK's.

    i have the same problem, u gotta go light on shoulder presses and bench presses also, cause all thses workouts puts a lot of pressure on the elbows.

    really eh, ive been incorperating them in my workout, but it seems like my chest and shoulders take some of the load... should i pre-exhaust them first with say DB overheads?
