Description

The bench dip is a great triceps builder and can be done virtually anywhere. I remember doing this exercise in my bedroom using my bed and a chair (way back when...). The primary muscle group is the triceps but this exercise also relies pretty heavy on the shoulders and chest.

This exercise can be done with your body weight or with weight. I strongly suggest you start out with your body weight first.
