How to do Ring Dips:

 

- Adjust the height of the rings so that your feet will not touch the ground between repetitions.

- Mount the rings and assume the support position. You should be above the rings, arms straight, supporting your body weight.

- Lower your body down by bending at the elbows and keeping shoulders close to your sides.

- Keep the movement steady and controlled.

- If possible, continue down until your shoulders almost touch your hands for a full range of motion.

- Press your body back to the original starting position.

 

Some tips:

 

- Leg position can be bent, crossed or straight during the exercise.

- To ensure the triceps are targeted ensure your body is straight up and down.

- Leaning over will bring the chest muscles into the exercise.
