Stand between two suspension handles and grasp handles on each side of torso. Hold position firmly and lift feet from floor.
Push body up until arms are straight. Lower body until slight stretch is felt in shoulders. Repeat.
This exercise can be performed on adjustable length gymnastics rings or a dual anchored suspension trainer. To emphasize triceps, position body more upright than demonstrated by positioning hips straighter. Also see Chest Dips.
To decrease difficulty, position handles so legs can assist.
Added weight can be placed on dip belt or dumbbell can be placed between ankles to increase intensity.
