    Dips are not overrated and don't let anyone fool you into thinking that. If anything is overrated, it's gotta be the bench press and even flat db press, for purposes of building decent mass. Dips along with incline db press should be your first priorities, and on the top of the list in selecting exercises for chest.


    Dips are the equivalent of the upper body squat. It's basically a movement that allows you to move through space. Anytime you do a movement standing or pushing/pulling vertically, you are bound to recruit more motor units to complete the lift and that has to do with hormonal secretions in the pituitary and adrenal glands. Most people don't know that and by doing dipping they're doing themselves a big favor. Dips are thought as full upper body movements where you work and recruit all of the upper body synergistic and stabilizer muscles. All guys that can dip more than 160 lbs for reps have big muscular chests. When was the last time you saw a guy that can dip 160lbs for at least 4 reps? Very few can do that because most people don't like doing dips.
    The same goes for chins and pullups. If you can chin 180, you have big back and biceps. And a damn good grip.

    The sissies can stick with just their bench press and ignore dips.

    Exactly. Dips and Incline DB Press lead to the best chest development IMHO. No need for any other chest exercises unless you just feel like it.

    ...and don't feel bad if you can only do 2 reps. I don't know about anyone else here, but I found when I first started doing dips it didn't take long to gain tons of strength and be able to bring the number of reps per set way up.

    My benching sucks pretty much... Not as much effect and gain as I wanted...

    When I added dips, when I got my new dipping station 3+ months ago, my pecs finally rose above the collar bone, and I got that nice ridge at the sternal attachment.

    However the place where dips seem to have had the most effect for me was in my delts.

    Was that the kind of feedback you were looking for?

    the responses i've gotten pretty much. i was asking because i had been doing mad benching and other chest exercises and i would have to do 10 sets to get my chest pumped up.


    yesterday at the park i did some primitive dips and my chest swolled up to my head, its still sore today.

    dips are fine. IMO, too much triceps recruited.

    Decline bench (slight decline, stack a few weights under one side of a flat bench support beam) isn't bad at all.

    I alternate here and there. Do either one. After enough weighted dips, you'll feel a bothersome pressure in your sternum.

    Again, switch up both.
    Work. Smarter.

    Dips are the equivalent of the upper body squat. It's basically a movement that allows you to move through space. Anytime you do a movement standing or pushing/pulling vertically, you are bound to recruit more motor units to complete the lift and that has to do with hormonal secretions in the pituitary and adrenal glands. Most people don't know that and by doing dipping they're doing themselves a big favor. Dips are thought as full upper body movements where you work and recruit all of the upper body synergistic and stabilizer muscles. All guys that can dip more than 160 lbs for reps have big muscular chests. When was the last time you saw a guy that can dip 160lbs for at least 4 reps? Very few can do that because most people don't like doing dips.
    The same goes for chins and pullups. If you can chin 180, you have big back and biceps. And a damn good grip.

    The sissies can stick with just their bench press and ignore dips.
    You mean BW + 160 lbs?!

    I alternate here and there. Do either one. After enough weighted dips, you'll feel a bothersome pressure in your sternum.

    Again, switch up both.
    too much tri's? d00d, the tri's are like the quads of a back squat. of course they're going to take most of the beating

    unless your not leaning forward and loooking down

    Dips are that good eh?

    I see ppl benching like crazy in the gym. Hardly anyone dips sets seriously. Or it's the 10 dips and 'that's it I'm moving on to DB more inclines'...

    me too; most i got up for dipping was +110pds (at a bw of 225), and even then it felt like my sternum was going to tear apart; too heavy on the body (and eventually my sternum did go, but oddly enough it was on a 'light' set (90pds))

    of course you see most people benching like crazy. It's cause in most fitness gyms, most people don't know how to correctly workout and eat, if they did they would be sporting 50 inch chests already.

    hey hey, 50+'' is reserved for us l33t people

    plus, unless you're a big boy already, only awy to hit 50'' is going ot be with heavy back work....lats make up way too much of the measurement for dips to be able to bump you up to 50''
