The tricep muscles (located on the backs of the arms) are a part of the body that people often find flabby and store excess fat. We know this stubborn area can also be tough to target with exercise.
Don’t worry! We have one of the most effective and best triceps exercises to help tighten this evasive muscle group. However, before we go much further, let’s quickly review the tricep basics.
Also known as the triceps brachii, the triceps are located between the elbow and the shoulder. This muscle has three heads and comprises approximately 60 to 70 percent of the arm.
All you need to know is why tricep function is essential:
Beware! There can be an imbalance in your upper arm strength if your triceps are weaker than your biceps. That is why you should not overlook focusing on the back of your arms during your exercise routine.
This exercise may be common, but it is not easy! The good news is that when you are consistent with dips, they are one of the best tricep exercises to get your arms in shape. Don’t just take our word for it: Scientific research confirms tricep dips can quickly and effectively tone and strengthen the back of your arms.
Tricep dips use your own body weight to achieve tight and sculpted muscles. You will want to start tricep dips with a stable platform such as a bench or chair. However, this is not mandatory.
Also referred to as Plyo Box Dips, the basic Tricep Dip exercise goes like this:
Once you have mastered this standard exercise, challenge yourself! Try these variations:
You can vary your equipment, too:
When you ace triceps dips, you will be proud to show off the results! In addition, you will have increased confidence in the gym or walking around in that tank top or sleeveless dress.
However, tricep dips can be tricky. Therefore, any exercise, whether it is for your upper body or your overall fitness, is best performed under the guidance of a personal instructor. This ensures you are doing your workout correctly to get your desired results.
