Floor tricep dips with CoreTex and Bosu


Exercise Benefits:

  • You can perform this exercise in the gym.
  • This exercise will build strength in your triceps, the muscle in the upper arm, giving you shape and definition.
  • Your shoulder muscles will also be activated to hold the shoulder joint stable as you perform the exercise on the Core-Tex.


  1. With your hips off the Core-Tex but with the edge close to your back, place your hands on the Core-Tex about hip-width apart.
  2. Your fingers should be pointing forward. Your arms should be straight, with elbows fully extended. Place your feet flat on the ground in front of you, about hip-width apart, knees bent, and hips elevated off the ground.

How to Do:

  1. Tighten up your core and abdominals then slowly lower your body by bending your elbows. Lower your body to a point that is comfortable; you should not be feeling any sharp discomfort in your shoulder joint. You’ll feel the Core-Tex slide backward as you lower your body.
  2. Drive your weight back to the start position by straightening your elbows and bringing the Core-Tex forward. Repeat for the required number of repetitions.
  3. Keep your chest up and lifted during the exercise, and resist the urge to hunch over. Your elbows should point behind you, like the wings of a grasshopper. Resist the urge to let them flare out like you’re doing a pushup.
  4. To further challenge yourself, you can elevate your feet on a Bosu ball and perform the exercise in that position. Place a Bosu ball about half a body’s length away and balance your feet on the Bosu ball instead of on the floor. Have your feet about hip width apart.
