Tricep Pressdown Substitute

What is a good substitute for a tricep pressdown?

With Dumbells or Barbell.

Skull crushers, overhead tricep extensions, close grip bench, board presses, elbows out tricep extensions.

These are all pressing up because you can’t do pressdowns with dumbbells or barbells.

Dips.

Much better than iso pushdowns.

I guess. I don’t even know why the original poster was looking for substitutes. I just gave some examples that will target his triceps.

Exactly. If you can’t pressdown, the only alternative is to press up or away.
