How To Do A Tricep Dip

how to do a tricep dip

Have you ever wanted to be that girl who does those seemingly impossible tricep dips at the gym?

Wait, you thought only men had enough strength to do those?

Nope! if you’ve ever seen a girl bust out a few unassisted tricep dips, you know how it feels to go back to your tricep extension machine and feel pathetic. Nothing shows off your upper body fitness level and competency as tricep dips, chin ups or pull ups. And nothing’s more fun than being able to have something impressive to do to show all your hard work.

Not to mention having nice triceps is the key to having toned and sexy arms.

So guess what? You can be that girl. I was in your shoes for a long time until I picked up a few tips about how to do a tricep dip, and boom, after a little time I got my first one! And so can you.

Here’s the secret:

  1. Practice them every day you go to the gym
  2. At first, start on the assisted tricep/pulldown machine and do 3 sets of 5. The weight should be set so that you can barely do 5.
  3. After a week or two (depending on how often you are practicing), go to the unassisted tricep dip bars and hop yourself up to a finished position (like the girl in the picture above). Lower yourself as slowly as you can, and repeat till failure.
  4. Once you feel the strength building after a few weeks, hop as little as you can till you can do your very first dip unassisted!
  5. Comment below and let me know when you do your first one!! Good luck!

Need Some Motivation?

Some days it’s just hard to do anything. You don’t want to even get up or do anything productive with your day, whether it’s  because you’ve been working hard for the past few days, or you’re sore from a workout, or didn’t get a lot of sleep the night before. Sometimes you should just listen to your body and rest for a day, but other times you know you can push through it, you just need a little motivation.

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know how much of a fan of Flavia Del Monte I am, and that I’m following her workout program and it’s been giving me amazing results. I found this video of her fitness magazine photoshoot to be really motivating, mainly because she talks about what was hard to sacrifice and how it was worth it, and you can see firsthand her amazing physique as she poses for the camera.

Most of the YouTube videos I have been posting are of her in preparation for this photoshoot, so you know you are taking the correct steps to look like her if you keep following my blog!

Hopefully this helps you keep your goal in mind and stay on track with your fitness regime! Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂
