Tricep Dips

Works your core muscles, strengthens your triceps and helps with stabilization of the shoulder blades.

Start: Sit on the floor with your knees slightly bent and your feet flat on the floor. Your legs should be hip-width apart. Place your hands behind you with your hands flat and fingers facing forward.

Movement: Keep your rear on the floor and shift your upper-body weight back, bending your elbows and lower your upper body towards the floor. Resist into the floor as you straighten your arms. As you advance, extend your legs, alternating with each repetition, as you straighten your arms.

Perform: 8 repetitions slow then 8 repetitions fast.
