The Dip Exercise

Essential Exercise

Equipment needed: Parallel bars

The Dip is a hugely productive exercise.

As an upper-body exercise and in particular a chest exercise, the dip is often overlooked in program design in favor of the more common Bench Press.

And while its working the chest, it's also giving the triceps a great workout, as well. Strengthen arms and chest with this exercise - it's very effective!

How to perform The Dip Exercise:

  1. Grab parallel bars and lift yourself so you fully extend your arms.
  2. Bend your elbows and slowly lower your body until your upper arms are parallel to the floor.
  3. Pause, and then push yourself back up to the starting position.
