Question Horse shoes..

I have been searching for a couple of days and I can't seem to find articles on training Triceps. I want horse shoes hanging off the back of my arms, big ones. Could someone point me in the Right direction?
One of these days I will figure out the search engine on here and I won't be asking as many questions.

The trick is to do bench, squats, and deadlifts until you hit the magical 3,4,5. Or better yet, 4,5,6.

Hrumph, there is a lot more to training than the big three lifts.

Frankly, I would work on dips. It has been my experience that dips utilize the triceps much more than bench pressing. straight arm pullovers are another good upper body move that will hit the triceps as well. Granted, neither exercise qualifies as much of an isolation move, but that is what works for me... and I really don't train for physique or hypertrophy, it just kinda happens as a side note to my training.

Well I know dips are great for your tris but you're not going to get far if you're only training your tris. What I was trying to say was train the big movements to get your body in the growing mode and then throw in some extra tri work if you feel thats what you need to really focus on.

I would say dips are a bigger movement than bench. All things being equal I think that a new trainee would get further training dips heavy and using bench as a supplemental exercise, rather than the other way around. But people have this weird fascination with benching.

i feel you AC. there are people who can bench 300 and up and cant do dips or pushups to save their lives. but if you get good at dips and pushups that def equats to the bench more IMO.

and i feel like OH pressing is better than benching

MONSTAFACE's Sig:OH SHIT!!!! ITS THE COPS!!!!

You clearly don't know shit about fuck - KANE

You're not some sort of mystical creature that is immune to a training effect- KANE

I wish there was an entity that represented the term "injury" if it was, i would find it and beat the living shit out of it!!!!!

yes......i just type and press enter, i dont proofread i did enough of that in college. you know what i meant when i typed it anyway

Well, telling someone they can't do anything until they can bench and squat and deadlift is a little like telling your kids they can't play with their christmas toys until they walk the dog and put away clean clothes and empty the dishwasher.

Lighten the F*CK UP! Seriously, everyone can start making some of the fine adjustments so long as they have an appreciation for the need to improve overall body strength. In a lot of ways, these ideals about what you can undertake before having a set of lifts that would make you stronger than 95% of all normal gym-goers is counter productive. If you want that big bench you are going to have to put some time into your triceps. We aren't talking endless sets to pump up, but some quality strength development. If you want a good squat, you would be smart to concentrate on some of the finer points of your legs to address lagging form or strength.

I understand the intent of the idea, I really do. Just have always felt there is a better way to get the message out.
