Thoughts on the dip assisted machine? Will they help you eventually achieve a real unassisted dip?

      it did for me

      if you start your gym journey while weighing alot its basically impossible to do dips or pullups without assistance. rubber bands or machines are both great machines for that purpose. as you become stronger and weigh less you will be able to do them without assistance. but even if you are well trained the machines are still useful incase you want to do drop sets or heavy sets

      based thanks guys

    Rubber bands probably cost 1% of that machine

    You can do bw dips until you're strong enough
    For pullups, you can start with dead hangs

      Your pic related is an inferior excercise and can fuck up your shoulders while granting less range of motion

    Yes it feels lame to go up there, especially since I was so much stronger and could even do weighted dips in the past, but you gotta start(and sometimes start again) somewhere. Just did some today. At least I'm noticing noob gains.

    Yes. I started with these and do bodyweight dips now. But balance will be an issue when you swap over initially

    I can't do unweighted dips for dogshit. It's not because I can't. It's because I swing like a monkey after 1. So I just stay at 15 lbs on the dip machine and do half assed reps. I really need to just do dips lmao. Doesn't help I'm 235 though.

    yes but the stabilizing muscles will need to be carefully trained as well with negatives

    I'm stalling at 3x3 dips. Should I be doing negatives instead or replace them with tricep+chest exercises and circle back later?

      frequency is the trick to getting more reps for calisthenics exercises
      >buy a pull up bar / dip bar
      >every time you pass by it at home do half of your max no of reps
      works everytime

    It worked for me in just one month but I still prefer using minimal assist to get more reps in for higher exhaustion

    I was dipping yesterday with 25kg belt, took it off for the first time to do an unweighted dip, felt absolutely incredible to realise how far I came.
