Dips : To
develop the thickness of the triceps muscles, especially around the
Dips are often thought of as a chest
exercise, but they can be done in such a way as to hit the triceps
muscles really hard as well.
1) Taking hold of the parallel bars,
raise yourself up and lock out your arms.
2) As you bend your elbows and lower
yourself between the bars, try to stay as upright as possible - the more
you lean back, the more you work the triceps; the more your bend forward
during the dips workout, the more you work the pectorals.
3) From the bottom of the dips
movement, press yourself back up until your arms are locked out, then
give an extra flex of the triceps to increase the contraction.
4) You can also increase the effort
involved in dips exercise by using a weight hooked around your waist and
by coming up only about three-quarters of the way rather than locking
out the movement and taking the tension off the triceps muscles.
