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.

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.
