Triceps dips

The triceps dip is an excellent exercise for toning your arms. It can be performed almost anywhere.

Put your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench or stable chair, fingers facing forward and elbows pointing backward with a slight bend in the elbows.With your legs extended out in front of you, slide your butt off the front of the bench.

Inhale and slowly bend your elbows to lower your body toward the floor until your elbows are at about a 90-degree angle. Be sure to keep your back close to the bench.

Once you reach the bottom of the movement, exhale and press down into the bench to straighten your elbows, returning to the starting position.

    Ahh! this is a different way to do “Triceps Dips”, I have always used the machine (without assistance) and did them in a standing position verses sitting. I like this one though and I have seen some do it before.

        Normal dips are hard enough, but sometimes someone wants to visit Hell ;)
