Tricep Dips


Level: Beginner
Regression: Bench tricep dips or using a higher surface for support
Progression: Weighted tricep dips, parallel bar tricep dips, or more challenging variations

Hold onto tricep bars with palms facing down. Bend elbows, lowering your body. Straighten arms to push back up. Engage triceps throughout for effective tricep dips on tricep bars.

How to do:

1. Inhale before bending your elbows and lowering your body;

2. Exhale as you push back up, straightening your arms;

3. Maintain a controlled and rhythmic breathing pattern for the duration of the tricep dips.


Maintain a firm grip, keep body upright, lower with control, and engage triceps. Gradually increase difficulty for progressive strength gains.
