The dip machine is a machine exercise that mimics a triceps dip, a bodyweight exercise performed on parallel bars or on a pull-up and dip station. It targets the triceps first, but also stretches and strengthens the chest and shoulders.
Dips with a triceps focus are usually performed with an upright torso, the knees bent and crossed, and the arms close to the body. Dips can be performed for low reps for strength or higher reps for muscle growth.
- Builds muscle and strength in the triceps, as well as the chest and shoulders
- Can add extra weight with a dip belt, dumbbell, or chain
- Serious upper-body training with minimal equipment
