Top 8 Dips Exercises For Beginners

By Nidhi Singh

Tricep Dips

Keep your body upright, lean slightly forward, and lower yourself by bending your elbows. Focus on engaging your triceps and keeping your back straight

Parallel Bar Dips

Using parallel bars, lift your body by pushing down, straightening arms, and then lower until elbows are at 90 degrees

Straight Bar Dips

Place your hands on one bar which comes relatively above your chest and raise yourself up till your hands are completely stretched.

Chest Dips

Lean forward and flare your elbows out as you lower yourself. This targets the chest muscles more than triceps.
