Move Of The Day // Tricep Dips
|| DIP ||
The Tricep Dip is my move of the day. If you feel like the back of your arms jiggle and need to be toned then this should be your go-to move! This exercise can be done using a bench, chair, sofa, or a step. Benefits: Strengthens the back of the arms, shoulders, and chest.
1 — Start by placing hands on a bench shoulder width apart, fingers pointing forward, and legs either bent or extended in front of you.
2 — Bend your elbows lowering the tailbone down towards the floor then push back up.
3 — Perform 2-3 sets of 10-15 reps. Tips: Keep the elbows pointing straight up and keep the back close to the bench. Be sure to leave a slight bend in the elbows as you straighten the arms rather than locking them.

Note: Long Back Stretch is the exercise pictured on the Pilates reformer and tricep dips can be added as a variation.
