Tricep dips

Really great exercise to target those pesky triceps and get your heart rate up as well which means burning calories!


Simply follow the photo from the top to the bottom. 
1. Find a bench or a chair or a low table. Place your arms at the end of end and scoot your legs out until your bottom is just off the edge and your legs are straight. For beginners you can modify by bending your legs to make it a little easier.
2. Lower your body until your arms are bent at the elbows and your bottom is hovering above the ground.
3. Lift back up by powering through your arms.
4. Repeat. I do 3-4 sets of 15-20 reps. 

I love this exercise because it is super easy to incorporate it just about anywhere you can imagine. In this photo I was in the middle of a state park and just used a park table!
