Summertime means it’s time for tube tops and tanks! If you want the back of your arm to stop waving when you stop waving your arm, take a minute to tone those triceps! We’ve got a great way to help you get those firms arms.

TRICEP DIPS—these are perfect to do during a Real Housewives or America’s Got Talent commercial!

How to:

  • Use a stable chair or bench surface—we actually use our bed frames.
  • Sit on the edge & place your hands firmly beside you (they will support your weight).
  • Fully extend legs and feet.
  • Remove yourself off the surface, arms straight.

– Your weight should be in the back of your heels.

  • Bend triceps 90 degrees.

– This means that your butt will get close to the floor (get low)!
– Don’t allow your arms to splay out to the sides, keep them close to your body.

  • Lift up, arms straight—and that’s one!

– Just be careful not to lock your elbows.

  • Repeat 3 sets of 10 reps.

– Challenge yourself: increase the number of reps!

*Need a modification to start? Bend legs into a chair position, feet flat on the floor!
