    When you dip, you eventually get good enough to add weight. Generally you do this with a belt and chain, putting a 10, 25, or even 45 lb plate on your belt and dipping with it.

    If you're good at bodyweight squats, you can start to do the same thing. You can add weight, but instead of using a belt, you can use a barbell. Then you can begin adding 10, 25, even 45 lb plates! You'll be amazed at how well you can progress with the exercise that literally every single person on this board recommends you trog.

      That's not a body weight squat anymore, retard. The point is to spam them for reps.

        Yes, but dips are only god-teir because you can add weight when they get too easy. Comparing all of dips to only bodyweight squats is a false equivalency. The equivalent to dips is squats, including weighted squats.

            Fair enough, guess I am out of touch with baseline physical ability. Good job, everyone has to start somewhere.

    Pretty far if you do the right kind, like bulgarian split squats, pistols, and sissy squats.

      I mostly fixed knee pain by stretching. Inflexibility will quietly mess your shit up. Nothing is more agreeable than bodyweight squats otherwise

        Can you recommend some stretches? I have horrible flexibility in my hamstrings.

    With the basic calisthenic squat, not very far. Thyere great for beginners for several reasons. Squats with proper form mainly work the quadriceps and they are already big and strong. You can do pistol squats as a more advanced variation of calisthenic squat. Spamming them for high rep isnt useful. After 50 a set they basically just become cardio bc theyre strong enough that just squatting isnt enough resistance. I just changed to goblet squats. Dips work the triceps which are far smaller and weaker but for them the variation matters, an assisted dips>dips

      Two options:
      1) Do a bunch of shit to try to unfuck your mobility/posture
      2) Just stop short of where it happens, usually somewhere between ATG and parallel

    Nowhere. Ever seen an 50 year old asian man who's been squatting every day his entire life? Do they look they have big strong legs?
