Modified Triceps Dip Exercise - Mimi Mini Supplement

Watch how to perform a great alternative exercise for your triceps if your gym does not have the seated dip machine. You can use the bottom of the assisted pull-up machine! This is also very silly!! ;D

The lever is where you would normally place your foot while you do pull ups. Instead, you can push down on the lever with your arms to work your triceps.

Normally, a weighted dip machine has a belt to strap you down. If you’re very strong and the weight stack is heavier than you, you’d need a spotter to spot you by holding you down. This is pretty funny looking! ;P

The first set is an example of how NOT to do this. It shows incorrect form in two ways:
1) Arm should be parallel to the floor – this will ensure you get a wider range of motion that will activate the triceps best

2) Weight stack should not be slammed – the movement should be controlled so the tension is kept on the muscle

The second set shows the correct technique. You might need a stronger and heavier spotter since you need someone to hold down you and the weight stack. You would need to sit down lower in order for your arms to be parallel.

Lastly, please make sure you use a weight that is not significantly lighter than you! A spotter is only required if the weight stack is heavier than you. My unintended blooper is shown here because someone was working in between my sets and I forgot to change the weight! ;D

---Tricep superset as part of my Arm workout---
Dips are a great arm exercise to build overall tricep strength. In this exercise, I am doing 4 sets of 20 reps supersetted by cable rope tricep pushdowns (not shown). Try it out! It’s an AWESOME burn!!

1) Tricep dips - 4 sets of 20 reps
superset with Cable Tricep Rope pushdowns - 4 sets of 20 reps

A Easy But Effective Plan To Lose Fat After 40, 50 ,60
Exercise can play a major role in helping you to lose weight. However, if people do not have enough willpower, they will often give up. Finding the fun in exercise is possible. Read these tips for helpful hints about your weight loss plans.

Turn the music on when you exercise. Playing music is a great way to get in motion, because your body instinctively wants to sway and groove to the beat. Working out to music is like dancing, which can make it more enjoyable. The aches and pains will seem less intense. Music can make the difference between stopping after 15 minutes and stopping after 30 minutes.

If you can, bring a friend to exercise with you. It is a wonderful way to stay active. Working out with a buddy can make exercising a lot more enjoyable. Exercising can be a blast when you are with a friend.

Utilizing a workout video allows you to enjoy yourself while you exercise. A video game routine is an easy way to encourage all of your family members to join in. You will not feel like you are working out if you do an activity that you enjoy. The workout video game draws you in and you won't even notice that you are exercising.

Purchasing new clothes to exercise in can be a great motivator. Make sure you buy clothes that are flattering and that you enjoy wearing. When selecting exercise outfits, use your imagination and resourcefulness to guide you in your purchases. Exercise clothing is made in lots of different styles and colors, so there are lots of ways to express your personality! The more comfortable you are in your workout wardrobe, the more comfortable you will be working out.

If there is no variation in your exercise routines, you will quickly get bored and lose motivation. This is the reason that changing your exercises is important. With on a treadmill, a great way to increase the intensity is by running instead of walking. You will find it easy to stay motivated if you keep your workouts fresh and novel.

One way to keep yourself motivated is to set goals and reward yourself when you reach them. Do not wait until you reach your ultimate goal to reward yourself. Be smart about your choice of rewards. Try to make your reward something like a new accessory or clothing item, but try to avoid food rewards. When choosing a reward, you should ensure it is one that has value to you and simple to get. Remember, it's important to stay motivated as your fitness is on the line!

Working out does not necessarily have to be a struggle. If you can make it fun, you will be excited to do it. You can have more fun with your workout by using these tips.
