Triceps Dip Variations (Exercise Tutorial) // Fitness Penpal


[Triceps Dip] Using sturdy dip bars, start with a controlled
free hold of your bodyweight. Drop your chest forward if you want more chest
involvement or focus on staying upright to keep the majority of the work on the triceps. Lower under control until your elbow joint
reaches 90º, then forcefully squeeze your triceps and push down to blast yourself back
up. To make the movement more difficult, squeeze
hold a dumbbell between the thighs or wear a weight-belt with added plates, though, I
wouldn’t recommend doing this unless you can perform at least 10 solid reps of the standard
version. If you’re someone whose elbows hyperextend,
do NOT lock out your arms at the top; otherwise, it’s safe and good to do so for maximum triceps
recruitment. If you’re not ready for the full move just
yet, you can do a bench dip. Hands should be positioned close to your sides. After liftoff,
keep your torso as close as possible to the bench and envision your movement directly
up and down – NOT forward and backward. For your exercise prescription, check out
