Chair Dips Exercise
Start out with a sturdy chair. (Or really, anything other than a super rickety chair.)
Stand as you would if you were about to sit down in the chair.
Now bend your legs 90 degrees at the knee as you reach back and grab the chair so that one hand is gripping each side of the seat. Your arms should be fully extended.
Now slowly lower your butt towards the ground, engaging your arms as you bend at the elbow.
As you get close to a 90 degree angle at the elbow, push your arms back up to a straight position, raising your lower body back up in the process.
That’s it! Shoot for 6 reps or so.
