Introducing the new close-grip bar adapter for Pull Up Mate!



Working closely with personal trainers and kinesiology experts, we’ve developed a kit that you can slide onto your Pull Up Mate to improve form and posture when performing tricep dips on the Pull Up Mate.



Having a closer grip means less stress on wrists and shoulders and helps to further bring the triceps into play. It will also take off some of the emphasis on the chest, though you can still increase the workload of your pectorals by leaning forward with your chin down, hips back, for a chest dip.

  This adapter kit slots easily on to the standard Pull Up Mate. No modifications are necessary.




The Pull Up Mate Dip Bar Close-Grip Adapter Kit is protected as an EUIPO Registered Community Design Numbers 005233293-0001 and 005233293-0002. Any attempts to counterfeit will be met with legal proceedings.

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:

  1. Grab hold of the dip bars with a neutral grip, lifting yourself up so that your wrists are in line with your shoulders.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Keep your spine neutral and straight.
  5. Do not shrug your shoulders. Roll them back and keep them there.
  6. 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.
  7. Inhale on the way down, and exhale on the way up.
  8. 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.
