How To: Dips

Works: Triceps

Equipment: Bench/chair

Besides working the triceps, dips also engage the pectorals, biceps, and upper back. And what’s even better, you can do them anywhere!

Sit on a bench, chair or ledge with your hands right by your hips. Lift yourself off the surface just by pushing yourself up with your arms. Then walk your feet a couple of feet away from the bench and lower yourself until your elbows are at 90 degrees. Then lift yourself up by straightening your arms. And repeat until you can’t do it anymore!

If you don’t have a bench, you can sit on the floor, hands right behind you on the floor, feet flat on the floor and lift yourself by straightening your arms slowly. Lower yourself by bending your elbows 90 degrees, but make sure you don’t touch the ground with your butt and don’t use your legs to lift yourself up.
