Tricep dips are one of our favourite upper body workouts and tricep exercises. Not only do they tone your triceps, but they also strengthen your back, chest and shoulders. Another great perk of this move is you can do it anywhere. No specialized equipment needed.
Here's how you do the proper tricep dips:
Sit on a sturdy chair or bench.
Place your hands under your hips.
Push up through the heels of your hands and move your butt and hips forward and off the chair.
Bend your elbows, lowering your butt down toward the floor. Stop when your elbows form a 90 degree angle. You want to make sure you keep your butt close to your chair and your shoulders down - don't let them hunch up around your ears.
Push back up, stopping at the top without locking your elbow joints. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
CHALLENGE YOURSELF by moving your feet out further. The closer your feet are to the chair, the easier it will be. Stepping them further out increases the intensity of the movement, and also, the results. You can really up the ante by placing your feet on another chair in front of you. Remember to work at your own pace, though. You want to be able to complete the full range of motion of this killer upper body exercise.
