How to perform
Triceps Dip - Starting position
Triceps Dip - Muscle Under Tension
Set up & Starting position (hanging)
Holding body from arms extended above the dip bars so that your legs are suspended off the ground.
Keeping your elbows tucked in and your body upright, slowly lower your body until your elbows form a 90-degree angle or you feel a slight stretch in your shoulders.
Push the body back by extending your arms to the starting position as you breath out.
If you lean forward and flare out your elbows, you will place more emphasis on your lower pectoralis major, and the exercise will become a Chest Dip.
