How to Do Bench Dips
- Turn your back towards a sturdy training bench, and put your hands on the pad about shoulder-width apart. Extend your legs in front of you.
- Lower yourself with control for as far as comfortable by bending your arms.
- Reverse the motion and return to the starting position.
The bench dip is a variant of the bar dip that utilizes a bench instead of a dip station. This exercise puts more emphasis on your triceps than the bar dip does, which instead emphasizes your chest and front delts more.
