Assisted Dips

The assisted dip exercise is a compound exercise for the chest, shoulders, and triceps. Use a weight that allows you to control your movement. Avoid momentum and concentrate on squeezing the chest and triceps.

Ball Pushup Feet on Ball

If your push ups are too easy you can perform them with your feet on a ball. By raising your feet you add more resistance to the upper chest muscles, much like the incline bench press. The swiss ball also adds the extra challenge of maintaining your balance while performing the exercise. The instability challenges your core and activates the abdominals, low back and obliques.

Barbell Bench Press

The bench press is often referred to as the "king" of upper-body exercise. The bench press develops strength in the chest, shoulders, and triceps. Using a barbell allows you to lift more weight than using dumbbells because you do not have to focus on stabilizing the weight as you push up. It's important to keep your feet on the floor for stability and always use a spotter for safety. The bench press should be a staple in your upper-body workouts.

View Bench Dip -- Feet Elevated
Bench Dip -- Feet Elevated

Bench dips with feet elevated develops strength in the deltoids and triceps. When your feet are elevated off the floor emphasis is placed on the triceps and shoulders. Experienced weightlifters and bodybuilders use extra weight when performing bench dips to stimulate strength development and size (hypertrophy). Plates are placed on the thighs and a training partner assists in adding and removing the weight when ready. Bench dips can be performed at home or at the gym with a couple of benches.
