For triceps, what difference do you guys notice between decline, flat, and incline CGBP?

The different angles are supposed to stimulate one triceps head more than the others.

Decline = Medial Head

Flat = Medial and Long Head

Incline = Long Head

However I disagree with that. I feel my whole tris independently of the angle. Decline feels more comfortable to me, Flat is more or less and Incline is simply awkward.

hmmmm... now that my most recent host of injuries have completely eliminated olympic lifts and their variants from my training, I find myself more and more trying to figure out this Bodybuilding thing. i have NO idea how to go about this.

for 30 years I have focused on "movements" not body parts, and to really select exercises and loading schemes that work a particular muscle group is so alien to me I feel like a newb all over again.

I think you get more tricep mass from skull crushers and close grip bench presses than from dumbell extensions and press-downs, but I do them all. I'm a big fan of super-setting skull crushers with close-grip bench presses.

Do people prefer a straight bar, an ez-bar, or dumbbells for skull crushers? Is either one better for elbow or wrist health?
