I am a beginner (16 years old) when it comes to weight training who is training for a more size and strength. I have a very flexible routine which works quite well for me as I do not always have enough time to work out.
There is just one problem, and that is that I can’t do any tricep work which is too isolated, eg cable pull downs as this movement puts to much pressure on my elbows which results in a sharp pain in and around the funny bone area. Working through the pain hurts like hell so that’s no solution. The one exercise I can do is a close-grip bench as this is slightly more compound, however it doesn’t offer me much of a range in exercises.
I know that I should check this problem up with a speacialist etc. but in the meantime I wonder if anyone could give me any ideas about how i could go about fitting some tricep work into my routine baring in mind that isolated exercises are not an option. I contantly hear that you should work on your weaknesses and my triceps are now lagging behind my biceps cause I can’t give that area a good workout.
I was thinking I could do some close grip sets at the end a shoulder workout as this workout involves the triceps to some extent but I’m not sure this is the way to go.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you guys can come up with.
