    These work well without the need for fancy equipment.

    Bench dips with or without plates on your lap
    Overhead dumbell extensions
    Dumbell kickbacks

    Ive always liked tricep pulldowns but dont have the proper machine for that.

    I call them diamonds, but I'm sure you're talking about the same thing :tongue:

    Its like a normal pushup only difference is you put your index fingers and your thumbs together to form a diamond shape, and then do a pushup - concentrate on form - no flexing at the waist.

    I also do regular pushups as well as "pulses".

    Pulses are like a regular pushup but you work the bottom end of your range of motion really hard. Start from the pushed up position, lower yourself to about 2 inches off the floor, then quickly push yourself up 3 times (about halfway up each time) and then on the fourth pulse, go all the way up.

    Last Tricep excercise I do is tricep pulldowns.

    Using the bicep curl bar, lay down on your back on the bench, extend your arms straight up with a shoulder width grip palms facing your feet , bend at your elbows steadily until the back of your hands come close to touching your forehead. Keep your elbows in and reverse on the extension....you can put more and more weight and not worry about plates on your lap.

    Try reducing the weight and doing more reps - if you can't keep good form for your whole set, you might be starting with too much weight. Everyone has a slight imbalance with their muscles - the left might not be as strong as the right (sometimes the right gets more of a workout... ). If your right can keep up but your left can't, reduce the weight and you'll eventually get your left up to form. Try working to full failure of your left and it should catch up soon enough.
