Training Frequently to Grow.
I've always had decent triceps, especially relative to my biceps. The main reason? I've always used a lot of frequency for my triceps. When I was a teen, I read that the secret to getting big arms was having big triceps since they "represent two-thirds of your arm mass." And while that isn't exactly correct, it really stuck with me. So I did at least twice as much work for triceps as I did for biceps, hitting them at least 3-4 days a week.
There were two times when my triceps were at their biggest. The first time was when I first tried Westside Barbell training, which emphasizes triceps training. I read an article by Louie Simmons about extra workouts. He talked about how using mini workouts every day and even several times a day could boost your results. So for several months I'd do sets of band tricep pressdowns every day, a few times a day. I didn't follow a specific sets/rep pattern, but instead just did a lot of band pressdowns throughout the day, focusing on getting a strong contraction and a pump. My triceps grew a ton.
The second time was when I specialized on the bench press and would do a form of bench pressing pretty much every day. It too made my triceps really thick and dense.
So if you want rapid tricep growth, train them frequently with low stress exercises (triceps pressdowns), focusing on getting a nasty pump and contraction (using moderate or light weights) and then stopping. Band pressdowns are great for that purpose and can be done daily, even several times a day, at home or anywhere really.
