Exercise How to: Bench Dips

Bench Dips

Using a secure platform, push off slightly with your hands and pause. Be sure as you dip down (note the placement of Kerri's hands) you can dip down without bumping your back.

Feet together, head up, back straight!

**Note** Because of her stomach, Kerri dips away from the platform, moving her hips slightly forward as she dips down.

If this puts undo strain on your shoulders, simply dip straight down -- vertical motion.

Pause just as your bottom is about to touch the ground and come back up.

Do not rush.
