Strengthen Your Upper Body with These Dip Machine Exercises
Assisted dip gym machines are equipped with weights and cables that allow you to select how much upward assistance you need to complete your dips. Target your triceps, deltoids, pectorals with this Xercise4Less Dip Machine Workout Guide to start shaping your body and seeing real results.
Each dip machine has a seat, a pair of parallel bars with handles, and a weight stack. You either stand or kneel on a levered platform which is connected to the weight plate by pulleys. Be sure to read and follow the instructions that accompany the dip exercise machine in your gym. If you’re unsure about exercising with the dip machine for your chest, just talk to our Personal Training staff who’ll be happy to provide guidance on dip machine technique.
As your strength increases through increased repetition of assisted dips, you can add more machine weight. The heavier the weight, the less body weight you will be dipping. When you’re able to do dips with good form, you can decrease the amount of assisted weight until you reach zero weight.
Read on for more detailed instructions on how to get the most from the triceps dip machine in your local Xercise4Less gym.
How to Use the Dip Machine Effectively
To use the assisted dip machine, select the weight you want to use, belt yourself into the seat and firmly grasp the handles. Keep your elbows in at your sides to target the triceps; your elbows should be bent at a 90 degree angle. As you contract your triceps, extend your arms downwards as you exhale. Slowly let your arms come back up to the starting position as you inhale.
Keep your back should be in neutral position and try not to scrunch your shoulders around the ears. Don’t lock your elbows at the top of the movement and maintain a straight line without any forward lean if you want to work your triceps on the dip exercise machine.
Do 8-12 machine dips for chest and repeat in 2 sets.
