Tricep Dips



The triceps dips are one of the best basic old school exercises which are beneficial for everybody – from the beginner to the advanced. They are great for triceps development and will give you overall size and strength in it. It’s preferable for the beginners and the intermediates to perform the exercise in the beginning of their workouts, because it requires good balance and overall power. The advanced can perform it at the end of their workout to pre exhaust the triceps and reach failure with him, rather than chest or shoulders.

Tricep Dips Preparation

Grasp the dip bars with your palms facing in and position yourself on the bars with your legs slightly bended and hanging right under you. Keep your arms almost extended and your body straight. This is your starting position.

Tricep Dips Execution

Breathe in and lower your body downwards as you keep your elbows in close to your body. Lower yourself until your upper arms and forearms form a 90 degree angle. Than breathe out and push your body back to the starting position by using your triceps. Squeeze the triceps for a moment at the top and begin the next repetition. Repeat the movement for desired amount of reps.
