Virtual Gym: Flabby Arms - Bench Dips


by eDiets

Bench Dips:

Using two benches or chairs, sit on one.

Place palms on the bench with fingers wrapped around the edge.

Beginners should start with feet on the floor and knees at a 90-degree angle. As you progress, move your feet out further until your legs are straight with a slight bend in the knees. Then use another chair/bench as illustrated and place both feet on the other bench.

Slide your upper body off the bench with your elbows nearly but not completely locked.

Lower your upper body slowly toward the floor until your elbows are bent slightly more than 90 degrees.

Contracting your triceps muscles, extend your elbows returning to the starting position stopping just short of the elbows fully extending.

Inhale while lowering your body.

Exhale while returning to the starting position.

Perform 12-15 repetitions and immediately go to the next exercise.
