    If you can't do dips you're not meant to be fit or aesthetic. You can possibly still bloatmax and bellybump a sub-bodyweight bench press but you'll never look good.

    I do these with a seated dip machine. Regular dips gave tendonitis in my shoulders for weeks.

    If dips and pull-ups/chin-ups didn't build your body in middle school you'll never be aesthetic.
    Lame-ass 20-somethings just getting into fitness after spending their teens and college years playing minecraft obviously need not apply.

      This is actually kind of true. If you weren't building a base in your early teens you're literally never going to be aesthetic and never grew properly, especially if you were fat.

        This.
        You will never have the same type of bone density and muscle mass as someone that's been doing sports and lifting since childhood.
        The type of stress you put your body through in childhood pays back tenfold later in life.
        There's archeological finds of skeletons of medieval english bowmen showing that the fuckhuge amount of back muscles they put on through bow training literally changed their bone structure.

    According to some forum I visited, the bone in the sternum isn't fully grown/hardened until you're 30/31 years old.
    You should either brace yourself better or don't go as low as possible.
    Having the dip bars closer to you can help
    Using rings can also help a lot

      If it hurts your sternum, there's only two possibilities
      >you have dogshit form
      >you have dogshit genes and your sternum is fucked up
      There's teens and people in their early 20's doing north of 100kg added weight on weighted dips.

        Can you not read? Happens all the time that some people have aches and pains with 'standard' way of lifting and change their form to where it works.

          You're not getting pains and aches in your sternum if your dip setup is on a 55 - 60cm width (I built several dip bars and several calisthenics setups), unless your technique is dogshit or you have a genetically fucked sternum.
          If your technique is on point, you should not have issues on any width, unless you do some obscene shit like ~70cm width (which basically turn dips into a mostly upper chest exercise, but the power output you can create gets cucked).
          As I said, most of you have garbage technique, clean that shit up instead of crying about irrelevant shit.

              That's why I said it's between 55 to 60cm, I built setups for people with different frames, myself included.

              >different techniques
              There's only one proper technique - protracted shoulders + rotating your chest downwards when going down, straight legs, straight hips, engaged core.
              Anything else is retarded and if you get pains, that's only on you.

              >What are you saying here?
              That in most cases it's gonna be a matter of technique, rarely setup and almost never "owwie muh sternum is not 30 years old yet", lmao, you dumb monkey cunt.

              >Because you've built some dip bars and now you feel like you HAVE to open your mouth?
              What's you weighted dip 1RM, what's your +48kg multirep max, how many dip bar setups have you built, how many years have you been doing calisthenics and streetlifting for?
              I can safely say that I outfuckingperform you in every metric here and that means that I am more qualified to talk shit, lmao.

          Also rings will only force you into a protracted position (aka the correct one), which is what you should be doing on dips regardless of setup.

          Learn proper form first, don't jump into weighted dips if you don't feel 101% confident in your unweighted form.
          If you want to protect your sternum, you should protract your shoulder and rotate your chest downwards along with the movements, and push from the back when you go back up.
          Look up Micha Schulz's, Mathew Zlat's and other calisthenics athletes' vids on dipping technique to see how it should be done the proper way.

        You can use a smith machine if you lock it at the right level. I use the top of a sturdily made swinging couch I have which has a bar across the top of it, similar to pic but I've taken the shade part off. Maybe you could use a fence or a goalpost nearby?

        in regards to shoulder strain, I've never hurt myself doing either but it's probably because as you get tired there's no bar under your chest to stop you lowering yourself too far. With the straight bar you stop on the bar so the ROM can't be dangerous. I also like to raise the hips backwards/upwards at the top of the rep to make the torso parallel to the floor, gives a nice squeeze on the upper chest.
        Takes a bit of getting used to to avoid dragging your body up against the bar too much but it's good.

    PSA for all home gym bros with limited space: you can solve your dip and pull-up needs with gymnastics rings. You can do progressively harder rows with them too by changing the angle of your body.

      If you have space to drill two brackets into the ceiling to hang your dip rings from then you have space for at least a half rack.

      But Chads get the real deal.

      Pic related is a real home gym, there are many like it but that one is mine.

      If your collarbone hurts, it's technique. You probably do them uneven and the load goes to the collarbone.
      Had it happen to me occasionally on weighted dips, and the issue was almost always an uneven setup (uneven grip, uneven descent, uneven pushing, going way too forward or way too back, etc.).
