This exercise involves performing dips with your feet elevated on a bench or other surface, making it more challenging and targeting the triceps and chest muscles. It is called "impossible" dips because it requires a high level of strength and stability.
Impossible Dips Instructions
- Start by finding a sturdy surface to perform the dips on, such as parallel bars or the edge of a bench.
- Place your hands on the surface, shoulder-width apart, and extend your legs out in front of you.
- Lower your body down by bending your elbows, keeping them close to your body.
- Once your arms reach a 90-degree angle, push yourself back up to the starting position.
- Repeat for the desired number of reps.
