Hey FitFam Coaches! 🌟  Coming at ya with this week’s Exercise Explainer – Triceps Dips 💪

Before we jump into the exercise – let’s cover why training triceps so important.

Triceps play a KEY ROLE in so many athletic movements – from powerful tennis serves and robust golf swings,  to functional everyday movements – like lifting groceries and pushing open doors.  

Triceps may be small muscles – but they are mighty!  And this week we’re zoning in on the triceps in our Exercise Explainer – The Triceps Dip …

This versatile and effective movement isn’t just about toning those triceps; it’s a holistic upper body workout that engages the chest, shoulders, and core. The beauty of tricep dips lies in their adaptability; they can be performed anywhere, making them accessible for clients in various settings. Whether at the gym, on the go, or even needing to squeeze in a quick workout session right at a desk chair – triceps dips are a go to!

Coaches – Whether you’re working with seasoned fitness enthusiasts or newbies just starting the journey, tricep dips are scalable, allowing for a customized workout experience. 

Embrace the benefits of improved arm definition, functional strength, and joint-friendly brilliance. Let’s dive into the transformative world of tricep dips and sculpt a fitness journey that’s both powerful and adaptable! 💪✨

Coaching Cues:

  • Form is King: Remind your clients to maintain proper form throughout. Shoulders down, chest lifted, and elbows pointing backward – let’s avoid unnecessary strain.
  • Engage That Core: A rock-solid core isn’t just for show! Encourage your clients to tighten their abs for stability, making those dips more effective and safe.
  • Mind the Depth: Emphasize controlled movement over depth. It’s not about how low they can go, but how well they can execute each rep.
  • Intensify: How far away your feet are controlls how hard the move is!

Pro Tips:

  • Variety is Key: Spice up your workouts by introducing different tricep dip variations – bench dips, suspended dips, or even L-sit dips. Keep it exciting and challenging!
  • Equipment Hacks: Don’t limit yourself to just bodyweight on the floor. Get creative with chairs, steps, parallel bars, or even sturdy tables for a dip-worthy workout anywhere, anytime!
  • Slow and Steady Wins: Encourage a slow descent and explosive push back up. This not only maximizes muscle engagement but also minimizes joint stress.

Options Galore:

  • Assisted Dips: For beginners, loop resistance bands around parallel bars or use a dip machine to provide that extra lift until they build strength.
  • Tricep Kickbacks: Complement dips with isolation exercises like tricep kickbacks to target those tris from all angles.
  • Mix and Match: Blend tricep dips into your existing workout routines. Pair them with push-ups or incorporate them into a full-body circuit for a killer burn!

Benefits Galvanized:

  • Arm Sculpting Marvel: 💪 Sculpt dreamy, defined arms with targeted tricep engagement.
  • Versatility at its Best: 🔄 Achieve fitness goals anywhere – at home, in the park, or your coaching studio.
  • Compound Muscle Engagement: 🔄💡 Activate chest, shoulders, and core for a complete upper body workout.
