    Michelle Beaumont: I'm Michelle and I'm demonstrating variations of Tricep Dips. We are going to have a lot of fun with this. Beginning with a bench, you can even do this out in a park, on a park bench or even a chair. You will just begin by stepping out, this is the beginner position, where your buttocks is close to the bench, you don't want to be way out, that's a common mistake I see. You are going to make sure that you are bending the elbows, not winging out, or it hits the shoulders.

    So, make sure the elbow is point to the rear, squeeze them in a little bit and draw the shoulders down the neck long, and you will just come up and down, you want to find out how many repetitions are suitable for you, you will know pretty quickly, if you are beginner. You can also vary this by crossing your leg over and doing some like this, or the other leg over. Some people like to keep their legs really straight or place them up on a ball, or chair to really challenge themselves and that's very advanced so make sure that you can handle it. You can also take a plate, place it right on top of your thighs to add a little weight and pump up and down like so. And that completes tricep exercises.
