Assisted Triceps Dip
This exercise involves using a machine or a partner to assist in performing triceps dips, which primarily target the triceps muscles in the back of the upper arms. The assistance allows for a greater range of motion and can make the exercise more accessible for those with limited upper body strength.

- Find a sturdy chair or bench and place it behind you.
- Sit on the edge of the chair or bench and place your hands on the edge next to your hips.
- Slide your butt off the edge of the chair or bench and straighten your arms.
- Bend your elbows and lower your body towards the ground, keeping your back close to the chair or bench.
