How to Perform a Tricep Dip

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Time to tone the arms a bit.  This exercise uses your own body weight for resistance.

1.  Sit on the end of a bench or study chair (not a rolling one!) with hands next to bum and knees at 90 degrees.
2.  Lower hips by bending arms at the elbow, with elbows going straight back.
3.  Try to keep space between your ears and shoulders.
4.  Keep hips close to the bench.  As you fatigue, your hips will naturally pull away from the bench.  Bring them back in.

5.  Using only your arms, push yourself back up by straightening your elbows.
6.  As the move becomes easier, straighten your legs to make it more challenging.
