    Tricep pressdowns for me. Skullcrushers are hard on my elbows and close grip bench can give my wrist issues. There are enough variations you can do with pressdowns to keep things interesting and it's one of the safest movements you can do IMO.

    Try cable overhead extensions, going up with a rope or even one hand just holding the little ball with no handle attachment. Much easier on elbows.

    For an accessory if you can only pick one, I'd choose cable overhead extensions, skullcrushers or some other overhead movement for the long head. Lateral head gets worked decently from all the pressing. In reality, I'd do a couple diff exercises or rotate a few.

    I wouldn't choose just one, mix it up. Pushdowns work the lateral head giving it that "horseshoe" definition.
    Upward extensions work the long head giving thickness to the outer arm.

    Yes, hypertrophy is it in a nutshell.

    Trying to get the big lifts up but bigger arms never hurt.

    I see I perhaps asked the wrong question. Instead of picking one exercise, what exercise or combination of exercises would you pick for optimal development of all heads of the tricep?

    Since the tricep is the majority of the arm, makes sense to focus more on it.

    Bench press with dumbbells. They are excellent and require the use of stabilizers so you get more bank for your buck.

    Pushdowns because you can use multiple grips and angles

    Although the precor tricep extension is one of my favorite for hitting the long head a bit more

    Decline skull crusher, you get way more time in the full tension zone than everything but push downs, but push downs suck since if you go heavy you need to lean into them.

    For me either cable pushdowns or seated single DB french press.

    I like that with cable pushdowns you can truly go to failure without a spot, whereas with many excercises you can't without getting stuck under a bar, or dropping the weight either on the floor or your head.

    Weighted Dips in my opinion put the most mass on my arms. For acc. I like push downs as mentioned, it's easy to change grips, and easier to lighten the load and keep going. I keep my tricep workout simple.

    Weighted Dips Heavy (Strength Sets)
    Weighted Dips Light (Hypertrophy Sets)
    Cables (Press Downs / Overhead Extensions) as finishers.

    This method keeps my strength going up, keeps my arms growing, and gives me a massive pump.

    I'm doing dumbbell skullcrushers on a flat bench. One thing I discovered is if you keep your arm slightly tilted away from you at the top position, it gives more stretch and makes it more intense. My elbows feel better too.
