Not every exercise is for every body, but everybody should exercise! For someone with wrist issues or a particular shoulder issue might be advised not to do it.
A big key to a proper tricep dip is shoulder stabilization. Here's my super-simple way to recognize and turn on your shoulder stabilizer muscles.
- stand, facing a mirror
- take note of how your arms hang at your sides and where your hands are. Do this before reading on. . .
- . . . OK, do your palms facing the front of your thighs? If so, your shoulders are slightly or maybe very protracted (rounded forward). This is no es bueno.
- Now I want you relax your shoulders down, lengthen your neck a bit and rotate your arms so that your hands now face the sides of your hips.
