Weighted Tricep Dips
- Carefully secure a weight belt around your hips. Step up to a dip bar. Position your hands on the bar with an overhand grip. Push yourself up and into the air with straight arms. Tighten the core to control stability.
- Begin the exercise by bending at the elbows and slowly lowering yourself.
- Once the upper arm is parallel with the ground, pause and push yourself back up. Be sure to focus the contraction into the triceps.
<em>As an alternative to the weight belt, you can hold a dumbbell between your feet.</em>
