Let’s Binge on Fitness!
Today, let’s work your should triceps and shoulders.
Dips are one of the best upper body exercises to do mainly because you are using your own body weight and you really don’t need any equipment to really get a good workout in. Dips can be done on a chair or even with two stable parallel bars. They are the best way to get a quick pump in as a warmup or as a stand alone workout.
Here is the challenge:
If you are not at a gym, find a bench outside so you can have something stable to push against. (See photo below)
- Sit on the edge of the chair/bench with your feet together.
- Place your hands on the edge of the seat on either side of your thigh and keep your feet flat on the floor.
- Bend your elbows 90 degrees and lower yourself towards the floor.
Complete 10 reps then hold for 10 seconds while still in your dip position.
After 10 seconds. Rest for 30 seconds for 1 complete set.
Continue this pattern for 5 total sets!
