Chest Dips

Chest dips are a great exercise for building upper body strength, particularly in the chest, triceps, and shoulders. They are a popular choice among fitness enthusiasts because they can be performed with minimal equipment and can be modified to suit different fitness levels. In this exercise, you will be using your body weight as resistance to work the upper body muscles. Proper form is essential to ensure maximum benefit and prevent injury. By mastering this exercise, you can develop a strong, sculpted upper body that will help you excel in other areas of your fitness routine.

How to perform Chest Dips

  1. Take hold of the dip bars and take your feet off the foot plates or floor so that your arms are weight-bearing.
  2. Bend your knees behind you so they are at a 90-degree angle. Keep your elbows extended at this point and gently lean your torso forward by 20-30 degrees. This will be your starting position. Tip: Keep a straight back throughout.
  3. To initiate the movement, inhale, bend your elbows, and descend your torso towards the floor until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle.
  4. After a brief pause, exhale and return your torso back along the same path into its starting position by pushing through your chest (primarily) and triceps.
