Countdown to Spring Challenge: Tricep Dip variation (leg lift)

My 3 year old videographer was HILARIOUS in this video. I could’ve posted the video just based on his commentary!

Day 4 of the Countdown to Spring Challenge is all upper body with 30 dips and 50 push-ups (or 60 and 100 if you are doing the advanced option.) I thought I’d give you a variation that adds a little balance work challenging one side of the body more than the other as you shift weight side to side.

Beginner tip: If a dip is too hard, sit on a bench with your hands about 1 foot behind you, fingers facing forward. Lean back and bend your elbows (keep your shoulders down.) Extend your arms to straight and repeat. This is a dip without your lower body weight. Do as many as you can with your lower body weight and then finish with this modification if you need to.

Spring’s on it’s way! I can feel it!
