Triceps Dip Challenge!

Tricep dips exercise and fitness motivation

Tricep dips:

  • Sit at the end of a bench or chair with your hands at the end about shoulder width.
  • Abdominals are contracted and chest is lifted.
  • On your hands, only scoot your rear about an inch away from the bench.
  • Retract and depress your shoulder blades as you bend your elbows behind you and slowly lower down into the dip. Don’t let your elbows flare out.
  • Straighten arms slowly – muscle up to starting position and repeat for up to 20 reps.

Tricep dips target the muscles of the back of the arms.

Challenge:

  • Try shifting your weight to one hand and try one arm dips.
  • If successful and you want more of a core challenge, lift one leg up.
