Single Leg Tricep Dips

Begin in reverse plank position, heels glued to the floor.  Lift one knee, driving opposite heel through the ground.  Slowly bend elbows straight back, using your triceps to lower and lift your body from the ground. Tip: to make this move easier, dip off the edge of a chair or bench. Perform 8-10 reps per side.
