❗️ARMS - triceps❗️
❗️Thursday: 4th exercise - machine dips❗️
These dips are executed to stimulate more triceps than chest so incorporate them for your arms or triceps exercises 💪
How to do:
1. Keep your upper body in a vertical position. (IF you will want to activate more CHEST fibers, lean forward a few degrees - somewhere around 25 degrees)
2. Keep your arms close to your body and when you are moving your elbows, move them backwards and not to the sides (don’t flare them)
3. In most cases, I don’t recomend to fully extend your arms but for triceps exercises, I believe that this is a must for achieving full contraction. But control the weight all the time; don’t neglect this part for your own good :)
4. Take a look at the range of motion in the video; if you are trying to get as much hypertrophy as possible, stick around that amplitude. If you want to develop more mobility and flexibility, that’s a different story that I will try to cover soon.
Bonus note: I must aware you people that if you want to achieve only hypertrophy (=muscle growth), you will lose flexibility in time. The tenser the muscles, the more rigid your body will be. That can be adjusted with stretching and specific exercises but as I said earlier, that will be covered in a different post.
5.Inhale when you let your arms go upward and exhale when you push the weight down
