TRX Suspension Trainer Triceps Dips

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.
