A compound movement focusing on the triceps, but also employing chest and shoulder muscles. This can be done nearly anywhere there’s a low raised surface of some sort. Beginners can do this with the feet on the floor and the knees bent, but as you progress, the feet can be elevated, and weights can even be placed on the lap. As with regular (parallel) dips, descend to the point where the shoulders are about even with the elbows… going lower is not necessary and may place excessive strain on the gleno-humeral joint. Avoid locking out in the top position.
