Mel is doing chair dips to get strong upper arms.

Dips are one of the most common and effective workouts there are to tone your upper arms. They target the back of the arms, the triceps.

There are several ways to do dips and chair dips qualifies as a low impact version which suits everybody.

The absolute best thing with this workout is that you can do it almost everywhere. Try it in the kitchen, in the couch, at work, in the hotel room. Your imagination is the only limit.

HOW
Sit on the edge of a chair with your feet positioned together. Place your hands in the edge of the edge with your knuckles facing out. When you do the dips, don’t flex your arms to more than 90 degrees. Keep your abs and butt tensed during the exercise. Slowly lower yourself and then push back up again. Breathe in as you go down and out when you push away. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Think of the movement and don’t shrug your shoulders when going down.

You can chose if you want to have your legs bent or straight, both versions works. For a more effective version place your feet on something elevated, like another chair.
