    Default Alternative for Tricep Dip

    Hey.

    I'm on 3 Day Workout for Beginners and i'm really struggling with the Tricep Dip. Well i'm not even doing the Tricep Dip. My gym only has the bars where you pull yourself up (so you start off under the bars as opposed to above the bars in the TriDip.) Anyway I can barely do two of the other ones and i'm not even sure if they hit my Triceps. I've been looking about on the exercises and will the Close Grip Push Up be an adequate replacement?

    Thanks!

    Either those or Bench Dips are fine replacements.

    Seconded, though it might be easier to do them with your feet planted on the floor.

    The further your feet are away from your hands and the bench, the harder they become.

    I'd do bench dips or close grip bench press as a replacement as they hit the same muscles

    not to hijack but does anyone know of a compond tricep exercise that hits the same head as the rev grip CGBP. the only other exercise i can think of (compond or iso) is the rev grip pushdown
