Daily Fitness Challenge: Can you do 30 tricep dips without stopping?
Target your triceps and sculpt toned arms with this challenging move. Use your body weight to push yourself and make note of how quickly your strength improves.
Our daily challenges are perfect to try at home, at the gym or in the park. They are designed to get you moving every day.
Throughout this Staying Active summer series, fitness experts Elia and Amanda – both qualified instructors at Flykick – will be on hand to show you how to do each challenge and give you their top tips.
Check back every day to see what the next challenge is – you could even film your progress to make a record of how far you’ve come.
The aim is to be active every day for six weeks over summer. Today’s challenge will test different muscle groups and help to improve your muscle performance.
These daily challenges can be done on their own, or you can include them in larger workout – it’s totally up to you. As long as you’re moving, that’s what matters.
We know doing the same fitness routine every week can get really tedious, trying a new challenge every day will keep your fitness fresh and fun – and you might even learn some new moves.
How to do tricep dips
Start with your hands shoulder-width apart on bench or the edge of your bed.
Your bum should be over the front of the bench with your legs straight out in front of you – support yourself with your arms.
Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body towards the floor until your elbows are at about a 90-degree angle and your bum is as low as it can go.
Then press into the bench to straighten your arms, returning to the starting position. This is where you will feel the burn in your triceps.
If this feels too hard, you can bend your legs to make it easier until you get stronger.
