Assisted Tricep Dips

If you have never done a full tricep-dip before, assisted tricep-dips will be perfect for you! No exercise should go undone in our workout, and just because you can’t fully do them is no excuse!

An assisted tricep-dip can be done by using your legs for assistance to take off some of the weight that your triceps need to carry!

The idea is to give yourself as little assistance as possible. Try doing as many tricep-dips as you can until you simply can’t any more. If this means you can only do 3 full tricep-dips and need to perform the next 7 assisted, that’s fine! Next time, aim for 4 full tricep-dips, then 5 full tricep-dips, etc. You are much better off struggling like crazy through what you can perform than breezing through all of them! The only person you are cheating is yourself! That’s against the Never Do Nothing Code of Conduct!!

If you are unable to perform a full tricep-dip for the entire series, don’t forget to end your assisted tricep-dip session with an attempt to lower yourself as slowly as possible. This is going to be hard, but work through it. Hang on as long as possible. Don’t forget that this will pay off in the long run and before you know it, your grit and determination will pay off by being able to do all your push-ups in ‘regular’ style!
