Exercises that are working the triceps are usually operated above and behind the head, putting the lifter or you at an uncomfortable and vulnerable position. And all of these are taking place while not totally challenging the triceps to its fullest potential and/or using other muscles in same movement. Well, the great thing is that, performing triceps dips can take us out from this particular situation by being an exercise to which you need to push yourself up and exercising not just your triceps but also, different parts of the body.
Aside from that, triceps dips have been very popular workout exercise in the gym for quite some time, helping it to establish its reputation to anyone who likes to become a bodybuilder. When doing triceps dips, this is actually firing up muscles mainly in the shoulder, pectoral and of course, triceps region. Apart from that, depending on your position, grip as well as expertise, the dips can be challenging towards your abdominal section which is crucial in stabilizing you throughout the workout.
If you would notice, when doing this exercise, the triceps dips are that one form of exercise that is very easy to tell on what muscles are being worked out because you are feeling them literally.
In most instances, this form of exercise routine is done on pair of parallel bars suspended at a place referred to as dip station. You need to grab 2 bars with an overhand grip, roughly at your shoulder width. The grip must be firm and comfortable enough for you to hold onto while doing the entire movement. With this being said, the initial position should start with your legs in the air, making your arms fully extended and knees bent. As for your back, they should stay firm and straight throughout the exercise and whenever possible, avoid rounding.
