Tricep Dips


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.

Tricep Dips

Step 1
Position your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench or stable chair.

Step 2
Slide your butt off the front of the bench with your legs extended out in front of you.

Step 3
Straighten your arms, keeping a little bend in your elbows to keep tension on your triceps and off your elbow joints.

Step 4
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.

Step 5
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.

Step 6
Keep your shoulders down as you lower and raise your body. You can bend your legs to modify this exercise.
