Whether youre outside, at the gym, or at home, triceps dips get your arms pumping. Be sure to avoid these common mistakes to make the most of this move and keep your body safe.
  • Position your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench or other stable surface.
  • Move your butt in front of the bench with your legs bent and feet placed about hip-width apart on the floor.
  • Straighten out your arms, and keep a little bend in your elbows in order to keep tension on your triceps and off your elbow joints.
  • Now slowly bend at your elbows and lower your upper body down toward the floor until your arms are at about a 90-degree angle. Be sure to keep your back close to the bench.
  • Once you reach the bottom of the movement, slowly press off with your hands and push yourself straight back up to the starting position.
  • Repeat for one minute.
