Training Tip Tuesday: Chest and Arms

Another tip Tuesday about training is here, this time it is dedicated to sculpture the chest and arms with the great Dip movement. To be honest, there is not upper body training with out the dips in my program. I love them and they have shape my chest to look fit and healthy. Besides, Dip is a great exercise for those who have and want to get rid of fat from the arms.

TRAINING TIP TUESDAY: CHEST AND ARMS

Traning your chest, arms and shoulders and you will covered for your upper body. This training day you can press and pull

MAIN MUSCLES INVOLVED IN CHEST

Pectoralis Major, Pectoralis Minor, Serratus anterior, and Subclavius

MAIN MUSCLES INVOLVED IN ARMS

Biceps, Triceps, Brachioradialis, Extensor carpi radialis longus, Deltoideus

 For the workout you can use your bodyweight and or you can use extra weights. I love this exercise because you can perform it anywhere, a bench, a bar, a chair, the bed. you just have to be creative and willing to do your fitness workout.

If you still wonder what is a dip. A dip is a PUSH compound exercise that involves chest, arms and shoulders, building strength and toning the muscles. If you like you can combine the variations to workout your chest and or the back of your arms.

Combining dips with pull ups  is a great upper body workout if you add to it also inverted rows and push ups.
