"Dips are a great way to work the pecs and triceps," Jones said.
- Begin seated on a bench, chair, bed, etc. with your hands at the sides of your hips and knuckles facing forward.
- Slide your butt off of the surface and bring your knees to 90 degrees. To make the exercise harder, extend the legs out long.
- Bend your elbows to lower your body toward the floor until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle. Be sure to keep your back close to the bench, chair, or whatever surface you're using.
- Once you reach the bottom of the movement, press down into the surface to straighten your elbows, returning to your starting position. This completes one rep.
