Tighten up with Tricep Dips

Let’s talk about my favourite body weight exercise, and how it can be done effectively to give you great arms. The best thing about this work out is that you can virtually do it anywhere, and at anytime.

The Tricep Dip.


1. Make sure you start with your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench or any step or stairs with a sufficient height from the ground. Over here, I like to use these concrete seats because they are firmly attached to the ground.

2. Slide your butt off the front of the bench with your legs extended out in front of you.

3. Straighten your arms, keeping a little bend in your elbows to keep tension on your triceps and off your elbow joints.

4. Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body toward the floor until your elbows are at about a 90-degree angle. Be sure to keep your back close to the bench.

5. Once you reach the bottom of the movement, press down into the bench to straighten your elbows, returning to the starting position. This completes one rep.

6. Keep your shoulders down as you lower and raise your body. For a harder workout, lift one leg as you come down. Alternate sides.

Do this for 3 sets of 20 reps.. Voila fabulous triceps!
