Exercise of the Week: Triceps Dips

Triceps are the muscles that run down the back of your upper arm, from your shoulder to your elbow. They’re a bigger muscle group than your bicep so working your triceps is a quick path to bigger, more balanced and great looking arms. Dips don’t require any equipment and can be done anywhere. All you need is a raised surface to push yourself off of. Dips are your essential anywhere, any time exercise. Instructions:

  1. Sit on the edge of a chair or bench with your hands next to your thighs.
  2. Lift your body out just in front of the chair, with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent.
  3. Lower yourself down so your elbows bend no more than 90 degrees and push yourself back up.

How many reps/sets? First timers try 3 sets of as many reps as you can do. Do these 2-3 times a week in front of the TV on commercial breaks. After about a month work your way up to 3-4 sets of 12-15 reps. Easy to accomplish while watching a 30 minute sitcom on TV.
