8 Popular Exercises That Even Fitness Instructors Do Wrong

2. Dips

This basic exercise works the triceps as well as the upper body. It is easy to do and is great for beginners. You should perform tricep dips with a bench or chair. However, after some training, you may be able to do them from the floor.

Make mistakes

– Extend your elbows outwards so that the shoulders are loaded, not the triceps.

  • Rounding your back can overload the shoulders, which could lead to injury.

The right technique

  • Place your palms shoulder-width apart on the edge of a stable chair. Next, stretch your legs forward and rest your heels on the ground.
  • Slowly lower your body by using your hands. Your elbows should be at a 90° angle at the end. Next, lift the bench with your arms. Then return to the original position.

– Your back should be straight and should be as close as possible to the chair. Your elbows should be bent in the back, not to the sides.
