    Moving in to weighted dips but I wonder how much differently dips would feel for me if I had a bar like that where my weight is centered Instead of doing it off furniture where I need to be at a slight angle. I'm guessing that makes a huge difference.

      in OP's pic it's a chest dip, where you lean in to activate your chest in the movement. The regular dip is more so on the shoulder/forearm axis.
      Chest dips are based for people with enough shoulder eccentric strength. Best chest gains in your life if you have the mobility/strength to do them.

          I'd suggest using a sandbag or weighted backpack or chest plate when doing chest dips bc if you dangle weights down there it might frick with your stabilizing muscles and you might injure your shoulder. I mean you can start with babby weight plates on a hip belts but then I'd suggest using a bag and technically for optimal chest growth, you'd want the added mass to be right on top of the chest on the vertical axis, so upper back via a backpack is better.

          So some people are able to begin already in the eccentric chest dip position but if you struggle with that, I would suggest trying to extend your eccentric shoulder strength first by practicing push-ups (add weights at convenience) with a variety of progressively wider and further back wrist placements. Picture yourself chest pressing a push-up with your arms relatively tucked back near your back, where ''dip bars'' would be. you also need to learn to activate the bend at your forearm. The most common culprit in difficult chest dip is your forearm remaining hyper-extended. Try doing a few push ups with your arms tucked back right now, and see if you can ''stop'' the movement at the forearm, i.e they are the ones doing the flexion/extension, and report back to me. We'll get to the bottom of this.

          • 1 month ago
            Anonymous

            And if you can't bend your forearm to go down, then try tucking in your scapula as it means you can't bring your shoulders back. Once you get in position with elbows hyper-extended, tuck in the scalupa, then dip. Try that one too on an eccentric push-up similar to dip wrist placement, and tell me if it fixes it.

      If you can do 2x15 you're well past aerobic into endurance. Just add weight slowly so you don't snap your shit up. I don't like doing low rep sets with dips. Keep it 2x15 and add weight as necessary.

        Appreciate the advice. Is a dip belt really bad rn?
        Here's the way I've been progressing - I started with 3 sets of 8 at bodyweight, and once a week I up the reps. Just did my third dips exercise, 3 sets of 10, and next time I'll do 3 sets of 11. Once I'm at 3 sets of 12, I plan to add 5lbs, and start again at 3 sets of 8, then work my way up back to 3 sets of 12. Is this a good approach?

          Anonymous

          for regular vertical dips that are linear a dip belt is fine as it follows the symmetry of the mass projection so the weight would compound on the muscle grown (shoulder, forearm, tris) because on this specific movement, mass is better following a parallel trajectory to the muscle worked.

          In case of working chest dip, the logistic dictates that the weight must be added right above the chest (via backpack/sandbag) because imagine how the weight would distribute on a chest dip if you tied the weight to the hips? At best your hips would tank all of it if you are strong there, at worst it would counterbalance your body either fall forward (most likely as you'd be leaning your weight forward already).

          As I said for babby weights you might achieve full ROM easy, but the problem is that the weight would distribute all across hip and back rather than directly on the chest.

        I guess I see your point. But isn't training for higher reps more useful for dips? When I program chins, I program for 10 reps or AMRAP. That's because chins are an assistance exercise. Bench uses more musculature than dips, so why not treat it as such and perform them weighted but with sets of 10? I'm just asking because you seem like you're not a moron with programming, but aside from compounds, I'm very very new to this shit.

    I absolutely love dips. Easily my favorite pressing movement.
    I have a standard parallel bar dip station in my apartment, but I prefer the Nautilus dip station at my gym (pic related).
    I prefer the Nautilus dip station because the bars are V shaped. I like to place my hands on the widest part of the V while facing outwards, which puts your shoulders in external rotation. I find that this allows me to dip much deeper. Combine this with a controlled eccentric and a pause at the bottom. These dips are much more difficult than standard parallel bar dips.
    I can easily do sets of 8-10 reps with 45lbs added on standard parallel bar dips, but I struggle to hit 10 reps with the facing outwards, paused V bar dips.
    The one issue I do have with the dip station at my gym is the bars tend to get slippery, especially on my last set when my palms get sweaty. My dip station at home has athletic tape on the bars to give me a better grip. I would like to do the same thing to the dip station at my gym but the owner is a c**t and won't let me do it.

      Anonymous

      V bars are more ergonomic but if you want to do anything more advanced than dips, you're going to want a straight bar.

      For example I tried doing Russian dips on a V bar and because the bar is angled I've slipped and beat up my forearms. Had to stop doing them before I eventually injured myself.

      Then straight bars are also better for handstand puships and straight arm L sit holds

      Yes, completely safe. Dipping is a very safe movement anyways, you are literally standing upright while doing them, there literally exists no way to die while doing a dip, unlike the benchpress. Your question is like asking if its safe to stand up right both feet planted on the ground and do dumbbell curls.

      dips are not good for bodybuilder tier pecs. lower pec does not get sufficient stretch to grow longer (bigger). best would be guillotine press or dumbbell bench wirlth flared elbows. Mike had pecs like pre bench bronze agers just bigger cause roids. still shoulders are like noses... shapes differ between people and not everyone can do guillotine, behind neck press or pull ups from relaxed hang without injury or at least risk of it...

        For sure, but if you're a lazy ass like me doing dips +DB bench or incline DB bench+shoulder raises is a hell of an efficient push workout

    I do my dips after my benching and I never have enough energy. I always fail 3x8 on the last ~2 reps

    Hit a 240lb chest dip yesterday (185lb body weight + 55lbs). What’s the actual cap on how much a natty can chest dip? Goal is to beast the frick out at 150lbs at least

    Been dipping for a few months, up to +20kg for reps, but my chest just feels totally blasted after each session even when I do bodyweight and I need to take a week off for recovery. Wat do?

      eat more proteins get better sleep and keep doing them. I do 4x10 +20kg 2-3 times a week while cutting without any issues. To be fair, cutting makes it easier since my bodyweight gets lighter.
