Dips – Upper Body Strength Exercise

This page will teach you how to do Dips (or Triceps Dips). This exercise will improve your upper body strength and thus will help you to generate stronger punches and grappling techniques. This exercise works primarily on the triceps muscles (the muscles on the back of your arm). Secondarily, this exercise helps to develop the strength in your chest and back.

Dips can be performed on dip bars, chairs, exercise benches, etc. Other triceps exercises include triangle push-upstriceps kickbackstriceps pushdowns, etc.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor to ensure the proper technique is being utilized and to avoid potential injuries. For additional exercises, please visit the main Upper Body Exercises or Strength Training sections.
