How to perform triceps dips properly:

  • Hoist yourself up onto a bench, chair or step as long as it is stable and secure to take your body weight.
  • Hands should be shoulder width apart fingers facing forward and elbows pointing backwards with a slight bend in the elbows.
  • Legs extended out in front of you with a slight bend in the knee.
  • Slowly lower your body until your shoulder joints are below your elbows.
  • Push back up until your elbows are nearly straight but do not lock them out.
