A beautiful woman is a strong woman, both spiritually, emotionally and physically. a CON-FIT-DENT woman . One who believes that she can do anything that she puts her mind to. A woman who is not weighed down by the world around her and does not constantly need to change herself to suite it either. A woman who is not afraid of a little more bulk up and goes ahead and lifts twice as much weights than the next guy in the gym . See where I am going with this ladies? . I hope you do. If not, let me break it down to you a little.
doing strength training is not as bad as it sounds. well, not now it’s not, back then a woman who lifted was either considered retarded or she was joining the military or something. the world is way smarter now of course,
women around the globe are training their muscles and are definitely winning at it as times go by. Don’t you just love how the fitness world is changing to suite us ? I mean , what more could you ask for? (well, apart from diner with Sauti sol , dang! this boys can sing…plus are they fit or WHAT!)
Anyway, back to reality. In THIS post we tackled Push ups , we figured out how they are done and how amazing they are for your arms, mainly your Biceps. well, I am doing sort of like a continuation of the article…. well, not really a continuation , I am basically finishing up what I started…………..what am I saying really. Let’s just say, I am writing this post to try and help us not to neglect our triceps by assuming that we are working them out too by doing push ups only
That was a lot harder to explain than I imagined, anyone else choke on their own words like I do? ( ‘lemmie’ see you put your hands up and whip ‘em’ like you just don’t care)
Okay so ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you..DIPS ,
They are like a jack of all trades and a master of all at the same time. They not only strengthen and tone your triceps but your shoulders and chest too. It is simple and all you need is your body weight to perform this excercise
hold on to a chair, table, bricks, whichever ..with both hands at the back as seen in the photo above
make sure your legs are straight or slightly bent as seen above
then carefully drop your body down to a comfortable level as seen above
or even lower, just make sure you do not sit on the ground, as seen above
then slowly get back up, repeat the process severally. say 20 repetitions, resting for ten seconds then redoing the whole set. do this five times and you will be good to go, enjoy yourself bearing in mind that this is not torture but the road to a stronger healthier you.
