Mechanics Type


Proper Exercise Technique

Grip the dip bars about shoulder width apart and start the movement with your arms fully extended and your body upright. Lower your body until your upper arms are just below parallel to the ground, pause briefly at the bottom, and then drive your body back up until your triceps are fully contracted and locked out.

Tips: Make sure not to grip the bars too wide as this will shift the stress from your triceps to your chest. Also remember to stay upright throughout the movement rather than leaning forward. If you can perform more than 7 reps using your own bodyweight, use a weight belt and dumbbell to add extra resistance.
