Assisted Triceps Dip Machine Exercise

Starting Position

Follow machine instructions for set up and select desired weight. Grip the handles underneath your shoulders with palms downward and elbows pointing back. Straighten the arms and place knees on the pad, so that your body is upright and abs are engaged.

Action

INHALE: Bend elbows to lower your body until elbows are bent about 90 degrees.

EXHALE: Straighten elbows to push back up to the start position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions

Keep arms close to the sides of your body and point the elbows back (not out to the sides). Remember that on this "assisted" machine, when the weight you choose is heavier, you’re lifting less of your body weight and the exercise is easier. When the weight you choose is lighter, you’re lifting more of your body weight and the exercise is harder.
