Purpose of Exercise:
TO DEVELOP THE THICKNESS OF THE TRICEPS, ESPECIALLY AROUND THE ELBOW.

This movement is also known as “Bench Dips” or “Reverse Push-Ups.”

Execution:
Place a bench or bar behind your back and hold on to the bench at its edge, hands about shoulder width apart.
Place your heels on a bar or another bench, preferably at a level higher than the bench you are holding on to. Bending your elbows, lower your body as far as you can toward the floor.

Then push up, locking out your arms to work the upper triceps. To work the lower triceps, stop just short of locking out. If your own body weight is not enough, try doing the movement by having a training partner place a barbell or Olympic plate on your lap.
