Dip Machine Guide

Main Muscle: Triceps

  1. Sit securely in a dip machine, select the weight and firmly grasp the handles.
  2. Now keep your elbows in at your sides in order to place emphasis on the triceps. The elbows should be bent at a 90 degree angle.
  3. As you contract the triceps, extend your arms downwards as you exhale. Tip: At the bottom of the movement, focus on keeping a little bend in your arms to keep tension on the triceps muscle.
  4. Now slowly let your arms come back up to the starting position as you inhale.
  5. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Variations: You can perform this exercise on parallel bars or on a triceps dip assist machine.

May 14, 2012 10:24 AM: Great workout for me because my body weight is too much for me to dip and lift right now, so this is a really good compromise!

Feb 25, 2011 1:04 PM: I have recently started using this, and my advice is to go heavy. When I first tried it, I set the machine at 110 pounds, and that was far too light. I'm now doing sets of 10 at 190/210 lbs, and am seeing and feeling some immediate improvement in the look of my triceps.
