Triceps Step Dips (beg) 01 - Pro:Kinesis Personal Training, High Wycombe

Begin by sitting on the edge of a step block, with your hands resting on the edge either side of you. Place your feet together out in front of you with your knees bent, and supporting yourself on your hands, slide your buttocks off the step, as shown.

Then slowly lower yourself, keeping your back close to the block. Lower yourself within a comfortable range, then slowly straighten your arms and raise your body back to the start position.

Repetitions: 10-15

Sets: 2-4

If you don’t have a step block to use, a chair or bench are just as good, just remember to keep the movement slow and stable and don’t go too low. If you want to increase the intensity of the exercise you can either straighten your legs by placing your feet further away, try adding weight to your lap, or even keep one foot raised off the floor.
