What exercise could i do fo working the long head of the triceps? Overheadpresses standing or sitting with barbell oder dumbbell doesnt work for me. My shoulder kills me. I guess im not flexible enough and my shoulders always give up before my tri.
Are Skullcrushers, Frenchpresses and Rollbacks lying flat also working the lond head?
Regardless of the exercise, heavy pjr's or any elbow flexion movement can really trash your elbows. I suggest getting some neoprene sleeves or lightening the load and hitting the higher rep range similar to a DC set of 15-25 RP. If you are not concerned and have good elbow health make sure you watch the videos on how to properly perform the pjr pullover.
No i wasnt. MP works good, unless im not doing at atm. Its just that i work my shoulders before tri and they burn as hell if im trying to work tri overhead. But ive tried pjr pullover and it worked well, so thanks guys. Did them medium reps and worked good. Will try to go heavy next time, to see the difference.
good adivce indeed!! on pushing(compounds) movements I can go pretty heavy (for me,260ish X 8reps CGBP),any -and I say any- flexion movements (french press both kambered bb and dbs) or overhead db press done with a 6/8 reps load kills&trash my elbows for days (sleeves or not).....same for heavy tris pushdowns at high cable,WTF!!!!
Youve got to go High reps with the PJR pullover anyway. You run out of weight so fast. Hopefully your gym has some really heavy DBs. You could go heavier with an BB in theory but might not like the feel of this compared to DBs.
yeah,i was thinkin to use a kambered (ez) barbell with PJR pullovers,btw don't think to use heavy db...i use just 70lbx14reps for standard pullover (lats)-4sec eccentrics,can do bb rows with 250lbx set but never liked to go heavy with isolation excercises,too much load on single joints imo (i could be wrong,btw)....anyway,friday I give a go at JPR pullover
Definately the EZ bar. They are also really good from dead stop off the floor. Just make sure that if you try them you know the ROM. There is no elbow lock and you do not bring the bar/DB back up over your face.
