How to Do Triceps Bench Dips
Each triceps bench dip should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately, stop these triceps bench dips.
Beginning Tricep Bench Dips
1. Sit on the edge of the bench and place your hands on the edge of the bench beside your hips with your fingers pointing forward, towards your knees.
2. Your arms should be straight, with elbows fully extended. Pull your shoulder blades back and down and slide your glutes just off the bench, then extend your legs fully in front of you. Make sure that your head is in line with your shoulders and hips, and that your torso is perpendicular to the ground.
Tricep Bench Dips Movement
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 feel any sharp discomfort in your shoulder joint.
2. At the bottom limit, your upper arm will likely be approximately parallel to the ground, with your elbows bent at about 90 degrees. Drive your weight back to the starting position by straightening your elbows.
3. Repeat for the required number of repetitions. Your elbows should point behind you, like the wings of a grasshopper.
