    Bench press and dips

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me. When I go gym, I do benchpress and then switch to the dips machines afterwards. I was wondering if the rest period between the two should be consistent and does it not being consistent effect progress? For example, you time it so that you have a 2 minute rest period before you start using the dips machine after using the benchpress.

    Or perhaps it doesn't really matter at all and I am being a little bit extra?

    I can reload half a box in shotgun shells in 2 minutes. A full box takes about 3:30. I normally reload a full box between compound movements.

    You get back under your bridge.

    If serious, then obviously wait your turn... Or you could do a compound pull and do antagonist training on a U/L split.

    you politely remove him while you do your reps, then kindly return him to the same position once you're done, and thank him for his patience

    If you shove the guy out of the way so you can use the dip machine, it counts as a triceps exercise. Make sure to wait 2 minutes before you shove him again.

    You can still do dips anywhere there's two bars available, as long as you can stabilize and do them under control it's a preferrable option anyways.
