Mama Move Monday-Tricep Dip

Join us for Mama Move Monday every Monday! We'll walk you through some of our favorite FIT4MOM moves and why they are good for mamas!

Tricep Dips

1. Begin seated on the on the ground with your feet about hip width apart and out in front in a bent position. Your fingers should face your bum behind you with your hands planted firmly into the ground.

2. Slowly lift your bum off the ground. You will be in a reverse quadriped position.

3. Keep your core engaged as you slowly lower your bum towards the floor by bending your elbows. Keep in mind that the movement should NOT come from your pelvis, only your arms! Make sure your elbows point behind you, not out to the side. You should feel that burn in your triceps!

4. Slowly push yourself back up to the starting reverse quadriped position, squeezing those tricep muscles at the top

5. Repeat as many times as you can! Remember, it's better to do 5 reps at 100 percent, than 25 poorly.

Watch our video for alternates if this doesn't work for your body right now. Modifications are offered in every FIT4MOM class!
