Tricep Dips

Home / QT Fitness / Tricep Dips

One of the questions I get from every client is “How can I tone up the back of my arms?”

Although society has named this part of our body as “batwings”, I like to choose a different word and call them by their anatomical name:
“The Triceps”

Toning your triceps — the muscles that run on the backside of your upper arm, from your shoulder to your elbow — is one way to easily tone your arms.

A basic body-weight exercise, triceps dips don’t require much equipment: You can use a sturdy table, couch, bench, or even do this exercise on the floor!

Here’s how to do this move:

Position your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench, stable chair or on the ground
Slide your butt off the front of the bench with your legs out in front of you- keep legs bent. Straighten your arms, keeping a little bend in your elbows to keep tension on your triceps and off your elbow joints.
Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body toward the floor until your elbows are at about a 90-degree angle. Be sure to keep your back close to the bench.
Once you reach the bottom of the movement, press down into the bench to straighten your elbows, returning to the starting position. This completes one rep.
Keep your shoulders down as you lower and raise your body.

Do 15 to 20 reps per set and aim to do two to three sets.
