How to Do Chair Dips

If you're traveling on the road and your hotel doesn't offer a gym, you can still perform exercises such as chair dips in your room. Exercising in your room is also a viable option if you are pressed for time or just prefer to exercise alone.

Just imagine that you are about to sit in an imaginary chair placed directly in front of your real chair as you set up for this exercise. You can do chair dips anywhere you find a sturdy chair.

1

Stand in front of a chair.

Face away from the chair’s seat.

2

Sit down on the edge of the seat and place your hands behind your hips.

Your hands should be on the edge of the seat and shoulder width apart.

3

Lift your buns off of the seat and walk your feet forward.

Make sure your hands are secure on the chair so that you don’t slip off. Keep your chest elevated and head up. Your knees should not bend past your toes.

4

Slowly lower your body downward.

Be careful that your elbows don’t bend to an angle smaller than 90 degrees.

5

Extend your arms, raising your body upward and supporting your weight with your arms.

Beginners can try 1 set of 6 to 8 reps. More conditioned exercisers can try 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps.
