    Do dips work the chest?

    I am doing normal vertical dips, with no forward lean and I feel my chest tightning.

    Is this normal?

    I though only leaning-forward dips work the chest.

    You use your chest to a degree doing any dip movement. You can emphasise it by thinking about working your chest (serious)

    The more you lean forward while your doing dips the more involved your chest is. If you stay very straight and back the entire time you still use some chest, but its basically all tricep.

    That, my man, depends on your body, how much rest you'll get, and what you take.

    For me, no way would I be ready.
