A basic body-weight exercise that isolate the muscles at the back of the upper arm. Tricep dips don’t require much equipment: if you don’t have a bench or fit ball, you can always do them on the ground.
Position your hands shoulder-width apart on a bench, chair, fitball or the ground. You should be supporting your body weight on your toes and forearms. keep your torso straight.
Bending at the elbow, keep your arms next to your sides and slowly lower your chest to hover just above the ground.
Pressing into your palms firmly, extend through the elbows to raise your body. Keep your torso rigid as you perform the movement. Repeat.
When straightening your arms, keep a slight bend in your elbows to keep tension on your triceps and off your elbow joints. Bend your legs at the knees to reduce resistance.
