      Dips focus on the triceps, bench focuses on the chest. Unless you do chest dips but then say goodbye to your sternum.

            Dude, perfectly upright dips are terrible form. A little forward lean is ideal because it increases the range of motion of the triceps and having activation in the front delts and chest is a bonus.

        Bench obly focuses on chest until you hit monster weight. Then your chest is more of a stabilizer

        Bench is chest for 1/3rd of the movement (and that's with a wide grip) and only hits the pec major which is why every bench autist gets a tear right between the pec major and deltoid. Dips put the chest in a full range motion.

          No one said it's too little volume. We said that there are muscle groups being neglected that will eventually lead to shit posture/injury and the fact that it uses expensive equipment is fundamentally not minimalist.

      Do assisted dips and then lower the assistance weight until you can do body weight. Then start adding additional weight to keep progressing in strength

        sets and reps??
        I can do like 5-8 so its not that bad. I just hate doing them since I suck at them. i love the exercise

          My philosophy is to only up the weight on an exercise until you can do 10 reps with 1 second pauses at the bottom of the movement. This is usually good for beginners, but if you're plateauing, add some weight until you can do only 3-4 per set. After a couple weeks at this heavier weight, go back to the lighter weight and it should be trivial progressing to 10reps again.

            Forgot to mention set. I work 3 at the 8-10 rep range, 4 set from 5-7, and 5 sets for 3-4

    I have a home gym but no dip rack, would it be autistic to bring a belt and some plates to the local park and do weighted dips on the rack there?

      If this is really true it just means you already have well developed pecs. Not everybody is at your position obviously so that's why some bother.

    Threads like this make me appreciate how lucky I am that I'm able to progress with dips. Assisted dips are probably good for everyone else.

    I just can't do these correcly with the assisted machine at my gym, the cable is right in front of my face and I'm stuck into an ankward position wich punishes my shoulders.
    The trainer insists that I'm doing it correctly, but it doesn't even fry the triceps.

    These replaced standing arnold press as my #1 favorite exercise, I can do pl8 but feel I should work on lower weights for higher reps due to how important shoulders are.
