Why is the doms to growth ratio so fricked for triceps?

    doms is the indication you're doing something right
    if you're not getting doms (doesnt matter how advanced you are) it's a problem
    the degree of doms obviously shouldnt be crazy as you progress but you still need to feel them, otherwise what the frick are you even doing? just junk volume

        He's kind of right though. DOMS fades away once you're getting used to your routine. You should be keeping your routine fresh enough that you still get DOMS

      Nah it's a pump, hard pump. I always check after a set, how I found out close grip strict incline hits the inner upper part same with going like half way down on it maybe a little lower.

      Eh, I don't think that true anon. Literally the only time I got DOMs was my first leg day, which lasted a week. After that nothing. And yet my lifts are increasing, my physique is getting better.

      Try overhead triceps extension (either one or both hands). According to research it's the most effective and you don't need high weight for that exercise. This and dips are my only triceps-focused exercises and it seems to be enough.

        you're gains on the table is my opinion, obviously not everybody is going to agree with it and me personally I always thought like you where you only should get doms when you first hit the gym
        I came to the realization that's moronic when actually started putting effort in the gym
        again, you're not supposed to feel like you cant walk or something but you do feel a little bit of soreness

          I do upper/lower split 4 days a week, spending 1.5-2h in the gym each session, upping weights every week, going to technical failure. I think it's enough?

            im not you so idk, but maybe try upping the intensity (try to push slighly harder, bit by bit)
            I do think DOMs are an important indicator that you're not just leaving gains in the gym

              Do you take creatine? If not, that could explain why you get DOMs.

                I think it really depends on the program, if you're mainly doing strength training what I'm saying might not apply

        BTB Shoulder Press and Floor Presses are the ones I feel the most in my Triceps, tricep extensions on the other hand just frick with my elbow joint personally.

          Have you tried them both hands? When I was doing them one hand only, I felt a weird "popping" feeling in my right elbow. It didn't hurt but I felt like if I continue doing this, it eventually will. But when I switched to doing them both arms at the same time, the problem went away.

            They are a shit exercise either way compared to BTB OHPs. Skull Crushers on the other hand are the better tricep extension variant or tricep pushdowns even.

              Why would skullcrushers be better than cable overhead? It's literally the same movement, except the dumbbells are resting in the top positing while cable = constant resistance (therefore better).

                its obviously not the same because skull crushers are notoriously frick with everyones elbows

                They frick up elbows because the exercise is easier given the same weight, so you need to go heavier.

                No you don't, just go with more reps instead of weight, not everything is a mark rippetoe logic of 5x5ing burger munching, truck driving obese manlet standard. Some muscles and exercises work better when you train them in endurance fashion and some in sense of higher volume such as the fores and the calves as they can naturally output a shit ton of force if you let them even in untrained way, its the triceps and biceps that don't function in 5x5ing manner. Same with core muscles. Your back, chest, legs and shoulders possibly work the best in 5x5ing them.

                Skullcrushers are just better, only time I would use cables would be for things like facepulls or standing chest flies or tricep pushdowns, well aside from maybe rowing and reverse curl variations since those gain the best benefits from cable work.

                skullcrushers are equivilant to cable overhead but only if you pull the cables up straight behind you. every moron at gym stands forward and pulls over their head parallel to ground which if i try that you’re not stretched and you can use your shoulders and shit to assist too easily

      I agree and call bullshit on the "DOMs isn't a good indication" crowd. They always cite some study that they've never read and I'm not even convinced it exists.

      I mean, it's common fricking sense that the thing that hurts is going to grow.

        me when I don't know what DOMS are and that it's literally nothing to do with the muscle fibers themselves but the connective tissue disruption in untrained/detrained tissues

    Your base for triceps should be heavy OHP, dips and bench

    Skullcrushers every so often to top them up

    But I bet by "blasting" them you mean blasting them with a kneeling singled handed chest down cable science-based kickback like a homosexual

      I lift about 5 days a week 3 of which are bench days.

      >you're hindering your progress greatly
      If I waited like 3 days between benching I wouldn't be undergoing constant protein synthesis. Gaining size requires high frequency and lift numbers being high due to always being fresh is ego lifting.

          I put on more size because of the routine but still I bulked pretty hard and didn't gain much fat. I get weight or reps on my shit every week or 2 unless I did like 20 hard sets a session.

          I'll reevaluate at higher weights if I'm stalling yes I'm aware 2pl8s then dropping after a couple is dogshit at least 185 feels like 135 from a few months ago.

    My triceps didn't start growing until I started doing my movements real slow. Enjoying the eccentric movement. If you jerk your triceps they don't grow too much. Slow your dips down a lot and they will puff up.

    You might be overworking them. Mine are already completely fricked after benching, db ohp, and whatever else I do on push days. Or it could be a genetics thing. My triceps have always been relatively bigger than my other muscles

    For me things like heavy JM presses for sets of 6-8 and weighted dips is what grew my triceps the most.
    I can't do weighted dips anymore due to costochondritis so i replaced them with bench dips and i put plates on my lap

    How did you measure this? Could you do more weight or volume on your next triceps day? If so, they grew, just imperceptibly because they're relatively small muscles. I hope you weren't expecting to put an extra inch on your arms in one gym session.

    Are you lean enough to realize how big they are? If you're not lean enough it's easy too lose touch of their actual size since they'll kind of just go straight into your rear delt size

    My triceps grew the most when I did minimal direct work and spent a lot of my time doing narrower shoulder-width standing overhead presses, push presses, jerks, and close grip benching.
    Even when I was 280 and chubby doing strongman, you could still see the horseshoe coming through nicely. Always one of my best parts.
