      Me neither. I just stopped doing them entirely. Tricep cable pulldowns are a million times better

        single arm extensions are fine to do with cables and shouldnt cause much elbow joint pain because you're doing a more natural movement and the resistance is lined up better

      Retract your scapula, relax the shoulders. The elbows should not move, otherwise you're just doing half a pullover for no reason.

        I just did some pullovers on the edge of my bed with a light weight (15kg) after reading this and DAMN, I felt it all over my upper body (including abs since I had no feet stabilization).
        definitely adding this to my list of favourite exercises

          it's also known as the upper body squat since you can work the chest and back compared to rows and benching in which the arms give out.

            yea I felt that, though it felt hard on the shoulders. It was the first time I tried it.

      stop flaring out your elbows. put a band around the elbows and you won't flare at all. this will make the movement harder though, so lower the weight.

      Then do that.

      There's no need for almost any of the insane numbers of borderline-useless arm isolation exercises.
      For triceps it's arguable that you even need isolation exercises if you do lots of dips. If you do include isolations you should only need overhead extensions to hit the maximum stretch position, maybe kickbacks to get that crazy contraction, and both are better with cables.

      I really feel like db skull crushers and db upright rows and lateral raises have helped my pressing movements, and I think db curls have helped my chin ups since my bideps don't fatigue as easily or quickly as before. But I also really think that simply doing regular arm isolations solves the problem of guys who lift but don't think they look like they lift when they see themselves in the mirror. If you add extra volume to beef up your triceps, biceps, and shoulders, you'll look closer to the way you want while also getting those smaller muscles stronger which has benefits for big compound movements. You say "there is no need" for isolations but there's also no "need" to bother lifting in the first place. Not everyone wants to be a strongfat powerlifter.

    Why do my knees hurt when I do these? Ik the solution is probably just lowering the weight but still is there a reason?
    Happens with bench press sometimes too

      I fell for the compounds-only meme when I started a couple years ago, now I'm a somewhat v-shaped torso with twig arms

      Exactly. The ONLY time it EVER works is if you’re a manlet on gear.

      You absolutely need to isolate the long head of your tricep. The long head greatly helps in maintaining stability during shoulder excercises.
      Benching, dips and OHP don't work it nearly as much as they do the lateral and short heads.
