About the Form & Proper Execution of TRX Suspension Trainer Triceps Dips
To perform TRX triceps dips properly, face away from the TRX and grab the
handles behind your back with your palms facing towards each other. Make sure
the straps of the TRX are on the outside of your wrists. Position your feet in
front of you so you are supporting your weight with your arms.
Take a deep breath and lower your torso towards the floor. Lower yourself as far
as you comfortably can. If you have any previous shoulder injuries any
forms of dips and especially these TRX dips may not be a good idea as they can
put your shoulder through a very difficult and unstable position.
For your own good, if you experience any unusual pain, pick an easier exercise
as there are hundreds of other triceps exercises. Exhale as your push
yourself straight up, extending your arms and contracting your triceps before
you repeat the movement.
Your foot position largely increases or decreases the difficulty of these dips.
To increase the difficulty & resistance, extend your feet away from your body as
far as possible. To decrease the difficulty and resistance move your feet back
to where your legs are at about a 90 degree angle.
