Strength training: tricep dips

Our 12 Days of Christmas special continues


We continue our 12 Days of Christmas indoor training special with a strength exercise aimed at triceps. 


Major muscles used 



This is another great swim strength exercise. Freestyle swimming works the triceps by forcing you to push against the water’s resistance as you use your arms to propel your body forward. This can be done on or off a machine.

What to do 

Place your hands on a block behind you, shoulder width apart, legs together and straightened out in front on you.

Lower your body down and bend your elbows so that your triceps are taking most of your body weight. Push up and repeat for 3 x 8 reps.


Look out for tomorrow’s final turbo training session
