Wide Arm Triceps Dips

START
FINISH FRONT VIEW
keep arms wide - palms facing forward lower yourself down by taking elbows back

Extend your feet out to your front, the further your feet are away from the bench, the harder the exercise, however always aim to keep a slight bend in the leg to reduce the stress on the knee joint.



Focus throughout the movement to extend your elbows back behind you, lower your buttocks downwards by bending the arms, rather than taking your buttocks towards your feet.

Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
