What is a tricep dip? I see them on almost all your workout plans but I have no clue how to do them!
For my workouts, typically there are breakdowns/pics to show you the moves below. VERY important to read through, since I often give several modifications for beginners all the way to advanced, plus tips for form!
The basic dip uses your body weight to tone and strengthen your triceps.
Sit on a chair or bench with hands on either side of you.
Scoot your tush off the bench, but keep it close to the bench throughout the move (you’re literally lifting up and down: many people come too far from the bench, putting stress on the shoulders. Your butt should scrape the edge the entire way up and down).
With your legs straight OR bent at the knee, lower your body down until the back of your arms are parallel to the floor. Hold and push through the palms of your hands, focusing on your triceps, to come back up. That’s one rep.
Here’s a handy video to help! This is a low bench: you can use a chair or any other surface to do these. Straightening your legs makes it harder: bend them to help you if it’s hard.
