Exercise Description

What are the Tempo Dips?

The Tempo Dips is a Calisthenics exercise which is excellent for improving the dips technique and strength. It consists on performing a regular dip but doing the upwards movement in slow motion. In the video example you can see 3 seconds tempo dips, notice the change in the speed from the downward to the upward movement.

This biggest issue with this dips variation will be to maintain the proper form during the pushing movement. 

You should focus maintaining the same form and path you would in a regular dip.

 

Main Muscles Worked

The main muscles worked in the tempo dips will be very similar to the regular dips muscles:

- Triceps, anterior deltoid, pectoralis muscle (clavicular, major and minor) and the rhomboid.
