Let's see how many ways we can think of to work triceps (this was just a random choice). Name the exercise, and the equipment needed, if any. Let's see who can name one that most people have not heard of, for a challenge. So, if someone lists one that you haven't heard of, post under that thread that it's new to you.

Skull Crushers (Pull-overs)

Can't really describe the exercise. You lay on your back with a Z-bar. The elbows are bent at a 90-degree angle and they never move from that angle. You lift the bar over your head towards your hairline and then pull back down over your belly-button.

Yoga push ups, done almost the same as military except your feet are hip distance apart and you keep your palms at chest hieght, tight at your sides elbows facing back so you feel it all in your tricepts not chest.

I've heard of the exercise but we call it tricep push-ups. They're very difficult.

Triangle pushups--not the same as yoga pushups, rather you place your hands on the floor, under your shoulders, forming a triangle with your thumbs and index fingers (like there's a football coming up through the floor at you to catch), and you do pushups with this hand position. It's VERY hard to do full-length/military-style triangle pushups, usually I have to do them on my knees if I'm going to do more than a couple!

I think this is similar to Millcreek's:

Using the cables, with the short bar, lie on your back. With your arms straight over your chest, bend them with the bar toward your head. Make sure to keep the upper arms still and straight up.

With sprybands and a partner. Cross the sprybands and stand back from each other, facing each other. Bend forward slightly, one leg in front and do tricep kickbacks. The farther away, the more work.

Paddle a kayak in proper technique - you have great triceps, lats, lower back muscles and quads.

A river, a kayak, a doubleblade and patience - that is what it requires.
