Butterfly Dips Instructions
1. Sit on the mat with your feet together, place your hands behind you with your fingers facing forward, bend your knees and let your thighs fall open.
2. Straighten your arms as you press your hips up and bring both knees together.
3. Bend your elbows and lower your body back to the starting position.
4. Repeat until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Roll your shoulders back, open the chest, position the hands under your shoulders, place your heels together and let your knees fall open. Breathe out as you press your hips up and extend your arms. Pause at the top to squeeze your legs in, and inhale as you bend your arms and return to the initial position.
From the Shop
The butterfly dips is a modified version of the tricep dips with additional lower body benefits. This exercise engages and strengthens your triceps and upper body, and it also works and sculpts your inner thighs and glutes.
