I don't really consider tricep pushdown a "building movement". I occassionally do it for elbow prehab purposes.
Dips, cgbp, ohp (with elbows forward through the lift) and lying tricep extensions behind the head are easier to get some overload and big weights with.
Correlation doesn't mean causation, but the guys who can push big weights on dips, cgbp, ohp and tricep ext pretty much never have lagging triceps. The same can't be said for tricep pushdowns from what I've seen.Edited by conceptionist - 4/25/14 at 3:36pm
