Tricep help
 
I am trying to tone up my triceps for summer. They are sort of jiggly. Anyway what exercises can you recommend for me to do? I have been doing pushups that are suppose to work the triceps, as well as dips what hone in on the tricep. What else should I add to my routine to spot train these?

close hand or diamond pushups work great... cable press downs done nice and strict work awesome... bench dips are another great tricep excerise alnog with close grip bench press

You can not spot reduce. Though you will strengthen the triceps (and harden them), and given time with proper stimulation the triceps will grow, which will tend to pull in skin/flesh surrounding them; however, the flabby portion will remain unless fat tissue is lost. In extreme cases (genetically dependent and especially with females) it doesn't go completely away--dependent on severity. Please note I stated extreme cases, you may not apply. As body fat drops, and muscle increases in size, the loose skin will try to bounce back. How much depends.

Are you presently over weight? What is your current physical disposition? How are you physically holding body fat? With females it can be a bit strange. No disrespect intended.

If you have a medicin ball, you can hold it above your head and do extensions. Keeping your elbows together, makes it harder, but also works better.
