Tricep Skullcrusher Variations
Lying skullcrushers are an awesome tricep builder but unfortunately they usually get a bad rap for causing some elbow discomfort. Typically due from a lack of mobility from the lifter
These are a few variations you can add to your skullcrushers to make them friendlier on the elbow and more effective long term
Use an EZ curl or cambered bar to perform them. This allows you to stay internally rotated more. Whereas a straight bar forces that external rotation you might not have
Use a little momentum to change the strength curve. By using some body english with the lats in the bottom position, you help deload the most vulnerable position and allows you to safely handle heavier weight into full extension. Just like if you were to use bands and chains
