The Dip is a bodyweight exercise used to primarily develop the triceps, with secondary development of the deltoids and clavical area of the pepctorals. Our example is shown GDIP59 Dip Machine.
START by rabbing the handles of the dip station. Jump up and steady yourself. You want to start the movement with your arms straight but not locked, and your body perfectly still. You can cross your legs behind you or leave them hanging straight down. The more upright you keep your body, the more you will concentrate on your triceps. Leaning forward will shift the weight to your chest and front shoulders.
Slowly lower yourself until your upper arms are parralel to the floor. (If possible, do this in front of a mirror to ensure proper form. Going too low can cause discomfort to your shoulders.) Push back tot he starting position.
Variations of this exercise include:
