I have been searching for quite some weeks now for a tricep movement that doesn't hurt my elbows. My elbows don't act up in any other exercises (chest/shoulders), but the lack of good tricep training is starting to show. I do PJR's as part of my training, but that's certainly not enough to make them grow. I'm looking for a low rep tricep movement that will spare my joints. Dear CT, please save my elbows. (PS; my triceps get trained once every 5 days)
Also, my question on auto-regulation. This is something I've been wondering for quite some time; I feel that I may have answered myself, but a professional answer would comfort me a little more.
Part of auto-regulation says that if you aren't progressing well in an exercise while your in the gym (tired, not focused, etc, etc) that you should just move on to the next movement. Also, if you find yourself unfocused and having a bad day, to just go ahead and feel free to leave.
My question is; when that next lifting day comes back around, how do you treat it?
Example: Week 1; 225x5 bench press, Week 2; crappy day-205x5, Week 3; [Do I go for a PR, do I try to hit 225 again, or do I just ramp up to whatever I can].
Like I said, maybe I answered myself, but it would help to have someone explain it to me a little better.
I apologize if these seem like long, mediocre questions, but asking questions never hurt anybody
