Tips

  1. Pick a weight that helps you get the repetitions you need but is not too easy.
  2. Be sure not to lower your body down too far as this will put unnecessary strain on your shoulder and may cause injury. Go down to where your upper and lower arm create a 90 degree angle and no lower.
  3. To focus more on your chest, lean slightly forward. Likewise, to focus more on your triceps, keep your upper body upright as you perform a dip.
  4. Do not flare your elbows out. Keep them tucked in.
  5. Do not allow your shoulders to raise up. Keep them tight, down, and back.

Variations

  1. Dip
