Skull Crushers VS Tricep Pushdowns
 
Skull crushers or pushdowns?

Thought it'd be a good discussion.

Both, alternating every other week.

That's how I like to do them.

I haven't done skullcrushers in a while. Tricep pushdowns definitely come to party.

Definitely the top 2 "isolation" tricep exercises IMO. CGBP and Dips being "compound"

There must be a good reason JB has me doing band pushdowns quite often.:)

I think it's because he's weak.

Interesting.

I thought of doing that but didn't know if it'd work. Now I know I'll go with that.

Yeah CGBP's far superior than both in my opinion, with it being a compound allowing you to move the most weight.

Just thought it'd be interesting to compare the two most common isolation lifts for the triceps for a change.

I find that both work for me. I usually do SC first, and follow with TE. Since my body weight has gone up(330ish) I find it harder to do dips because it really makes the shoulders sore afterwards. Eventually as my strength comes back I'll try dips again...someday.

I feel the same, I love CGBP, and those two have always been my favorite iso's when I do them.
