5x5 for Arms to Switch Things Up

Wrote a post about a month ago looking for tips for bicep growth and trying 5x5 for lifts like barbell curl, chin ups and hammer curls came up. Started doing it stength has gone up substantially as well as a noticeable difference in size. Wondering if I can also do this for triceps and if so what exercises/when to throw them in?

My split is:
Back bis abs
Chest tris
Legs bis abs
Shoulders triceps

Thinking maybe dips or close grip bench? I do dips both push days above as I love them for growth and strength but typically only do close grip bench on chest/tri day. Would imagine doing barbell or EZ bar 5x5 would be hard on the elbows. What are your thoughts?
