Triceps Dips Tips

The following are options that can be used to increase the isolation of the triceps whilst dipping:

1) Keep the elbows close to the body

2) Use a narrow spaced dip rack as opposed to wide-apart parallel bars

3) Use a parallel dip rack as opposed to dip bars that flare outward

4) Keep the trunk vertical

5) Keep the legs straight as opposed to bending at the knees

6) Using a smaller circumference dip bar

7) Take a palm-out grip (this will mean the elbows go away from the body, but may give added emphasis to your triceps.)
