SETUP: Climb up onto a Captain’s Chair or Dip Station and grip the handles tightly. Try to keep your chest up & shoulders back, as you would on any other exercise for good posture. Now add a slight forward lean, this will force your pecs to be the driving factor in each rep (unlike regular dips, where we stay upright to emphasize the triceps more).
REP: Lower your body by allowing your elbows to bend, keeping them tight to your sides as much as you can. A 90 degree angle is a good full rep. You should NEVER go lower than this, as it places the shoulders in a poor position and there are far better exercises for targeting that muscle if we want to train it. Return to the top position by pushing your hands into the handles of the machine HARD and squeezing your triceps.
TIP: Add weight to the exercise by wearing chains or attaching plates to a dip belt.
