Tricep Chair Dips

I am always trying different compound exercises so I can get the most effective workout in the shortest length of time. It takes time to go to the gym for cardio and weight training. Therefore, on some days I work out at home. One quick way to tone your arms and get great looking triceps is chair dips. All you need is a sturdy chair. For extra stability, place the chair against the wall.
  • Stand in front of the chair facing away from the seat.
  • Sit down on the edge of the seat and place your hands behind your hips. Your hands should be on the edge of the seat and shoulder width apart.
  • Lift your buttocks off the seat and walk your feet forward. Make sure your hands are secure on the chair so that you do not slip off. Keep your chest elevated and head up. Your knees should not bend.
  • Slowly lower your body downward. Be careful that your elbows do not bend to an angle smaller than 90 degrees.
  • Extend your arms, raising your body upward and supporting your weight with your arms. This feels amazing.  
If this is your first time trying dips or any kind, you may not be strong enough to support your body weight. Beginners should just try one set of 6 to 8 reps. When you become more conditioned, you may gradually increase your reps and sets until you progress to three sets of 15 reps. You will love your well-defined triceps with less giggle.
