Want to define your triceps? The classic bodyweight exercise, bench dips, are great for the triceps. They thoroughly target your triceps and your anterior deltoids. They also target the chest and shoulder and help add upper body strength. They’re also easy to perform. If you are a beginner, start with ten repetitions and then work your way to doing more. You can get toned arms in 30 days with these exercises.
However, when you are performing the exercise, you need to do it in its correct form to get the maximum benefits out of it. Remember to keep your back as close to the bench as possible. Don’t bend your knees as this will make the exercise easier and put less pressure on your triceps muscles. Also, remember to breathe properly while you are performing bench dips.
This exercise can be made tougher by doing it on two benches, one to support your hands and another one for your legs. When you get used to that variation as well, you can use plates or weights on top your lap to increase the challenges. Make sure you do this with proper guidance.
