Decline close-grip bench presses

The close grip on this exercise places a much greater emphasis on the triceps.  From a decline position, you are forcing your body to work against a different angle of gravity, thereby shocking them into growth. 

Implementation:  (A)  Using a straight or easy curl bar, lay back on a decline bench.  Implement a grip with your hands 3-6 inches apart.  This places much greater stress onto your triceps.  If you need to, allow your hands to rotate such that the thumbs come out from under the bar and wrap around the top.  (B)  Keeping your shoulder blades tight into each other press the weight up and down like a normal decline bench press.  There should be absolutely no cheating here!  Concentrate heavily on your triceps, feeling them contract on each press.
