Triceps Dips

triceps dips


Sit on the floor and place your hands behind you, fingers pointing forward and bent arms. Upper body straight and strong. Or, if you use a chair, start in with arms straight. Stretch your arms and lift your body, use triceps muscles. If you do the exercise on a chair - bend arms. Keep the abs tight. You can choose whether you want to start the exercise in the position with arms bent or arms straight, try and see what feels best for you. It may be easier to get into the right technique in the starting position with arms bent at the beginning.


Remember to keep upper body straight, chest up and forward all the time.


Choose to do the exercise on the floor or on a chair (place the chair against a wall to prevent it from tipping when you exercise).
