I’ve heard Dave Tate talk about developing the triceps “around the elbow joint” more than once. What part of the tricep is this and how is it that one can specifically cause hypertrophy and strengthen this part of the muscle?
My theory is that the upper part of the tricep recieves more hypertrophy with a great range of motion in the bottom the lift because of the great stretch. But, with movements like pin presses, rack lockouts, JM presses, etc, these heavily tax the end portion of the movement. Any thoughts anyone?
My recollection is that he was comparing PLers to BBers and was simply NOTING that the PLers had greater development of the elbow joint. Not that they said to themselves 'I want to develop that area, what should I do?" bbut more a case of the extra development being a by-product of the work they did to increase their bench.[/quote]
Right, but in noticing it, I believe it is inferred that it is optimal. So I was wondering, what specifically causes that to be developed? Lots of lockout work and limited ROM movements?
