How to Perform a Perfect Tricep Dip
A perfect dip is all about remembering where to position key areas of your body. Here’s a quick explanation:
- Grab hold of the dip bars with a neutral grip, lifting yourself up so that your wrists are in line with your shoulders.
- Lock your elbows straight at the top position. Remember to keep your elbows tucked in close to your body throughout the full range of motion.
- Activate your core muscles by contracting them before you begin the exercise. This gives added strength and stability to your spine to reduce stress on those areas of your body.
- Keep your spine neutral and straight.
- Do not shrug your shoulders. Roll them back and keep them there.
- Lower yourself down as much as you are comfortable with in the beginning. Remember to keep your core activated, your elbows in and your shoulders in a neutral position.
- Inhale on the way down, and exhale on the way up.
- After a few sessions try to lower yourself down to the point where your shoulders are just below your elbows.
Take it further
- Slow things down a little to help improve your stability
- Add a weighted belt to increase the load on your arms
- Lean forward to focus on your chest more
- Consider moving onto other exercises that progress on from this point, such as knee and leg raises
When done correctly, the tricep dip is almost a full body exercise as it requires a number of muscle groups to properly perform a dip.
