Once you reach a ninety degree angle, slowly come back up , and then repeat.
Hold on to the dip bars and start with your arms extended fully and your whole body perpendicular to the floor. Pull your shoulders back and slightly down. Next, bend your elbows slowly lowering yourself until your upper arms are one with the ground. Contract your triceps and extend your elbows which will allow you to push yourself up.
