Dips | Nichole Mellison
Perform dips to improve strength and stamina in your shoulders, chest and triceps. Already a great bodyweight exercise, adding instability with the AbStar Core Trainer increases the degree of difficulty. The AbStar AIR also raises you off the floor to provide a better angle to perform the exercise. Be careful whenever you perform dips that you don’t go too deep and strain your shoulder. Build up to this exercise after pushups and bodyweight triceps extensions.
Dips are a favorite exercise at gyms across the country and you can do them at home. Just be careful. There are numerous variations that we offer you in our videos to keep your muscles “off-guard” and working hard, dips are great when performed properly, but should not be the first shoulders, chest and triceps exercise you do. Once you’re ready, though, because the AbStar AIR is low-rise, you’ll feel safer performing dips close to the floor.
As always, watch Nichole for proper technique.
