Overview

Elbow dips are an exercise that targets the triceps. To do an elbow dip, you start with your hands shoulder-width apart on a sturdy surface, such as a bench or chair. Your feet should be flat on the floor, and your body should be in a straight line from your head to your heels. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your arms are at a 90-degree angle. Then, push yourself back up to the starting position. You can do elbow dips with your legs extended or bent. If you have knee problems, you may want to do them with your legs bent. You can also add weight to the exercise by holding a dumbbell or weight plate between your feet. Elbow dips are a great way to build strength in your triceps and improve your overall upper body strength.
