    Do Dips Work Out Any Other Muscle Besides Triceps?

    I know that dips are primarily for working out the triceps, but do they also work out other muscles? Examples: Chest, shoulders, biceps, forearms

    Please let me know and please be specific as to which other muscle groups dips work out.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you lean forward a little on the dip bar, its definitely chest.

    When you said "upside down at a right angle to the ground," do you mean facing away from the platform?

    I wasn't being serious, unless you're Bruce Lee.

    Why face away? Pretty sure you're meant to face inwards, I don't think it really matters though unless the bars are angled.

    Haha. I get what you mean now. You were talking about doing dips while facing your whole body to the ground.

    I don't actually have a real place to do dips, so I use the wooden end of my bed that's lower than knee length to do dips. Therefore, my dips are more like the Iron Gym workout bar's rendition. However, I still get more of a workout using my bedpost because it's higher compared to the Iron Gym workout bar.

    Try checking out the Iron Gym commercial if you still don't know what I mean.

    I know Iron Gym dips aren't that effective. I was just using that as an example because I didn't know the correct terminology of what version of dips I was doing. Now, I know that I'm doing BENCH dips. I think my bottom bedpost is high enough for these. I personally think it's a good platform to use for dips.

    How high do you think the platform should be?

    Triceps (duh)
    Chest (e.g Chest Dips)
    Abs (Stabilising)
    Forearms (Griping on tight)

    A some other muscles, but to an extent way too minimal to name.


    If I had to pick only 3 exercises to do for the rest of my life, they would be - Pull Ups, Dips, Squats (and all their variations e.g wide, narrow, palms outwards, palms inwards. leaning forward, single legged, fast, slow, weighted)

    Thanks in advance!
    depends where you put the tension, especially when you teach yourself to manually put tension on a certain muscle constantly you develop the uncanny ability to instantly put tension in that area

    like special guest ben pakaulski on sixpack shortcuts says, your body puts tension where IT wants not where YOU want i.s just because you jump o a bench press doesn't automatically mean you are training the chest which can explain why i couldn't feel it there when i first wanted to TRY to get into fitness

    but once you teach yourself it automatically recruits muscle fibres where ever you want, some bodybuilders have the gift to just tense wherever they want but most normal people don't, i can't believe this little tip works so well, that and with the best muscle building method is merely SHORTENING the muscle not going nuts with the the weight, i.e weight is just a tool and you shouldn't abuse it

    Depends on how centered you are, if you lean forward while doing dips (this goes for me, should go for anyone else too) you should feel it not only in your triceps but also in your inner pecs by your sternum.

    If I had to pick only 3 exercises to do for the rest of my life, they would be - Pull Ups, Dips, Squats (and all their variations e.g wide, narrow, palms outwards, palms inwards. leaning forward, single legged, fast, slow, weighted)
    if i also had to pick 3 i would also choose those three, but instead of dips i would pick bench press lol, obviously with its variations

    Also works the lower chest to a larger extent if you lean forward.
