Have you checked out Build Your Own Workout yet?!
This one’s included in the list of tricep exercises… of course! Ask Men also included it on their list of Top 10 Tricep Exercises. Yes, I said “Ask Men”, not Ask Women, but if you asked women and they had the same website I bet they would too 😉
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve featured an exercise move for Fit Friday and I think its overdue. To those of you who love it, keep rocking the dips. For those who need some insight, here’s your latest fit move:
Fit Friday: Tricep Dips
Weight: Optional 5-10 lb plate on your lap
Reps: 3 sets of 15-25 (weight dependent)
1. Sit on a chair or bench and position your hands shoulder width apart on the surface with your fingers facing you. Slide your butt off the chair and extend your legs straight out in front of you, and straighten your arms. This can be modified with knees slightly bent or at 90 degree angles with feet flat on the floor. The straighter your legs the more difficult the move.
2. Bend your elbows to lower yourself toward the floor until your elbows at about a 90 degree angle. Keep your back as close to the chair/bench as possible to keep the work in your triceps.
3. Push your hands into the chair/bench to return to starting position, still keeping your back close to the chair and keeping a slight bend in your elbows when you reach the top (don’t lock them like me in the picture ;).)
And there you have it. The most effective tricep workout for those sexy, toned arms you’ve been working for! For more Fit Friday moves and workouts check out the Fitness Page.
Have a lovely weekend 🙂
