    I put a dumbbell between my knees, hold it there. Yesterday used 60 lb dumbbell for 2 sets of 10. My pecs were screaming. Yesterday I felt it in my pecs more than other chest exercise

    the DB thing works but a belt allows you to add more weight...

    A 80 or 100 wont be so easy to keep between your knees. GJDM

    /QUOTE]

    True, but I think a newbie was asking what to do when no dip belt available.

    A better description is that dumbbell is just below my knees and sandwiched between my calves; it is sort of hanging from my upper calves. I can get on the dip stand with the weight on, but I can't get off, so I dip down and basically drop the weight a little ways to the rubber floor. Dropping 100 lbs wold probably be frowned upon and make a racket.

    Damn, if and when I get to 80-100 pound dips for 10 reps I'll take a video and brag about it and pound my chest! lol

    Weighted Dips: How much weight are you dipping with, and how many reps?

    How much are you people using for weighted dips, and how many sets and reps?



    What are you using?

    Do It!!! and just get yourself a belt... you wont regret it... good for chins AND Dips and they should be fairly cheap too.

    not really... you can see the hand placement is reversed but it feels more like a triceps extension to me, especially when you feet are pointed forward.

    Again, *Safety First*

    Why that question? Use what is appropriate for you and work up from there. If you can handle >10 reps with good form then consider adding some weight. How much? Well think about adding 10% more than your BW and shoot for the same number of reps. Set and rep scheme is up to you. GL

    But I have gotten up to 2x BW dips. I havent pushed it past that lately.

    Dips are amazing. I just started to do them again and man my chest sure feels them! Great excercise. The idea of them being the squat of upper body is a great way to describe it.

    My best was 135 pounds added for 7 reps at around 145 to 150 pounds body weight.. I hurt something in my left pec/shoulder/trap tie-in area though not to long after doing that and have laid off going that heavy since then.
    Weighted pullups = 195 lbs x1
    Weighted dips = 225 lbs x2
    Squat = 405 x2

    I always do 4 sets of weighted bench dips, but I hardy feel my triceps. I feel it for the most part in my shoulders. How can I hit my triceps more with bench dips? My hands are always very close to my body.

    an excerpt from a PM I recieved:

    Originally Posted by Anon
    In your "Dips" article, you wrote that a sharp line unlike any other can be produced around the Pectorials whilst doing Bodyweight dips with a particularly wide grip. My question is: can this same effect be eventuated by employing a slightly narrower grip?
    Well to be clear, that is an excerpt from the Great Vince Gironda. He has a lot of bodybuilding theories worth looking into, but to further explain the Pectoral group has both the Major and Minor. Where they meet/overlap is where the the largest of the chest striations appears.



    i.e.:





    So, the hypothesis is, from a BB approach, emphasizing and activating the Pec Major via very wide (Gironda) dips is to create a larger & wider chest while avoiding the "big breasted" look some BBers have. So many BBers use different techniques to emphasize different parts of the group.

    To specifically answer your question, I would say, Yes and No. Yes a narrower grip will still activate and stimulate the necessary fibers to build chest striations and no body-weight dips alone will not be enough to fully develop that look.

    Im going to assume that your only chest exercise is not dips, but its worth clarifying that the stress needed to fully develop a chest, needs to be with a variety of exercises and with successively heavy weights.

    This should help:http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/weik7.htm

    Really good exercise, but i can't do them anymore, because when i use the appropriate weight for about 8 reps, it strains my right hand too much, and feels like I'm going to burst a vain or something. Anyone else had this problem?

    Good article!!! Recently I started dipping and just got myself a dipping belt as well. Not many interested in dip, and most of them doing it wrongly which can be hurtful. Dip is one of my routines for warming up (of course not weighted, unless I dedicate that particular day for free and easy free weight training )

    For home gym usage, what about using a backpack turned around and strapped to your front?

    nice read and solid advise. i started with assisted dips (good idea for learning correct form) 3~4 sets til failure once a week and within a few weeks i was doing unassisted! now im finally weighted and it feels beast! theres just something gnarly about hanging weights off of yourself...
