Weighted tricep bench dips


Major muscles use

  • Triceps

Performing weighted tricep bench dips

  • Line up two flat exercise benches so that they are parallel to each other and wide enough apart so that when you lean on one with the palms of your hands the heels of your feet just fit on the edge of the other bench without falling off. If another exercise bench is not available you can use any other device such as a chair to support your heels.
  • Curl your fingers around the edge of the bench, holding your hands outside of your hips.
  • Have your partner or someone place weights in your lap after you have positioned yourself to do the exercise. Make sure your partner watches you closely making sure the weights stay in place and so he/she can remove the weight as soon as you are done.
  • Once you have completed the set, have your partner quickly take off the weight.

Be careful

Don't do this exercise unless the Tricep Bench Dips is too easy and you can perform at least 15 slow repetitions.
