    I am currently interested in growing my triceps (all 3 heads) and right now, I am only aware of push ups and dips. But I am starting to get bored with it after continuing it for months. So now, I am looking for some other body weight exercises that works effectively. Hopefully, some like minded people can give some insights.

    The best way to build not only triceps, but any muscle is to put some weight on your body. If you can do 20 push ups, put a backpack on your back with 10kg for example and do 10 reps. In a couple of weeks, 15kg and so on and so on. This is the best way to get bigger and stronger in every exercises.
