Triceps Dip (Bench Standard)

Target Muscles: Triceps (Especially the outer and medial heads) Starting Position: 1. You will need to place two benches, about the length of your legs,  apart. 2. Place your hands shoulder-width apart, fingers facing forwards, on the  edge of one bench. 3. Place your heels on the other bench so that your legs form a straight  bridge between the two benches. The Movement: 1. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your elbows make an  angle of 90°. 2. Hold for a count of two; then straighten your arms to bring you back to  the starting position. Tips: • Keep your back close to the bench. • Do not lock or snap out your elbows at the top of the movement. • Keep your elbows directed backwards during both the lowering and  raising phases. • Do not shorten the downwards phase. . Keep the movement slow - do  not rush the reps. Variations: Easier Place your feet flat on the floor instead of on a bench. Advanced Place a weight disc across your lap to increase, the resistance.
