    Ring Dips vs Bar Dips strength calculate.

    Hi everyone, I have a question; How can I calculate weighted ring dip strength standard? I can do 35kg/77lbs x 7 reps ring dip. 80kg BW
    I have not parallel bars, I cant test it.

    symmetricstrength.com/ strengthlevel.com/ = Only bar dip.

    I'm not sure there is a standard. I know the first time I tried ring dips I could barely do 1 despite being able to do a regular dip with ~135 pounds attached to me. The stabilization factor was brand new. In that regard it is to some degree a skill rather than pure strength-based, at least initially. I've always had a hard time conceptualizing dip strength standards as there seems to be no standardization of the width of the bars, which at least for me personally makes a significant difference.

    Anything done on rings will be harder than on parallel bars

    The stabilization factor makes rings much harder.

    I don't know if there's a formula, but if you can do 7 weighted ring dips - I'm sure your performance on bars would be noticeably better (either more weight or more reps etc).

    I agree.
    The rings will be harder because of the stability factor and also they have to stay closer to the body which almost makes it a tricep strength movement.
    Parallel bars depending on the width would most likely be easier and be able to move added weight.
    Kind of two different movements but the same if that makes since.
    It would be like barbell and DB bench press as far as differences go.
