#38: Challenge of the week: Triceps dips with leg lift

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

Leg lift Triceps dips
When you do body weight training and do not use any equipment at all, I think dips should be incorporated in every single training you do, as this is an area that otherwise might not get enough attention. But as said, that is just my personal opinion. The challenge of this week is a triceps dip with a leg lift. you can perform this exercise with the help of a chair or anything to create a difference in height, but you can also do it as a table top triceps dip with leg lift, meaning, without elevation to support your hands, on a flat surface on the ground. I myself, I prefer the elevated version, so that is the version I choose for this weeks’ challenge.

level 1: 70 reps
level 2: 140 reps
level 3: 210 reps
level 4: 280 reps
level 5: 350 reps
level 6: 700 reps
level 7: 1000 reps
