Power Move: Triceps Dips

Tricepdip 315

Nobody wants arm flab! Add some triceps dips into your day to tone arms in time for summer dips in the pool.

Where to do it: On the edge of a chair at home or a park bench while the kids jump around on the playground.

How to do it: Sit on the edge of a flat, hard surface like a bench or chair. Place hands, by your thighs with fingers facing forward. Feet are flat on floor in front with knees bent. Move forward so your body is hovering in front of the edge of the bench with arms supporting your body. Bend arms and lowering body until upper arms are parallel to the floor. Exhale and push back up, straightening arms.

How many reps: Start with three sets of eight, taking a short break between sets. Gradually increase reps within a set.

Challenge yourself: Straighten legs or pick one leg up off the floor.
