Anyone ever use these for tri's?

I'm on my 2nd blast and was trying to pick a tri exercise a few weeks ago before I started. I settled on overhead rack lockouts with a reverse grip. This exercise has been fucking awesome so far. I've had my elbow scoped and have some problems with certain tricep movements, but this one feels great. I was curious if anyone else has used this for DC?

Yes the top 1/3 or so, making it mostly triceps. I've done them before with a pronated grip, but I prefer underhand now. Can't use as much weight, but I feel the triceps doing much more work. And pausing on the pin to a dead stop to take away momentum makes it harder obviously, so I kind of feel like a weakling. Then again my overhead pressing strength sucks anyways.

i think that it could work, just progress and make sure you feel it in the intended muscle

Done them in the past (with a normal grip), I feel more stable doing horizontal lockouts.

the only problem I find with the lockouts tends to be when you actually stop the bar dead and it can often wobble around the pins, making it difficult to keep the bar straight.
