      Begin by finding the right distance to set your bars or dip handles. This can be achieved by simply standing with your arms to the side and rotating your palms to face behind you. From there the distance just outside of your pinky fingers is pretty close to ideal. Either hand the weight on a belt or pinch it between your knees.

      After finding the right width, grip the bars or handles firmly and push yourself up. As you lower keep your elbows and wrists stacked above each other and elbows tight to your sides. Brace both the butt and the abs. Once there, drive yourself back to a solid dip support without arching your back or letting your elbows flare out. If the weight is too much and you cannot stop yourself from either arching your back or elbows flaring out.
