    I would use low or medium or high reps. Anything in the 2-20 range would be fine. Going heavy is good.

    That's a WIDE range: 2-20? lol

    I would say somewhere in the 8-12 range.

    I *personally* prefer higher reps, 8-12, for triceps. I'm still going pretty heavy, but too heavy and I start to stress my joints too much.

    I tend to keep it higher than most exercises (up to 18-20 reps) because when I add too much weight it starts to bother my shoulders.

    When you get to heavier weights and low reps (below 6 reps), it can really start aggravating your shoulder if you're not careful. I stick to the same rep range for any other compound chest exercise that I do (6-12).

    When I start getting into heavier weights, 135+, I start concentrating more on the move, instead of just trying to get the next rep.

    It's not really my form, it's some old shoulder injuries that get aggravated if I go to heavy.

    I like between 5 and 8 reps for dips.

    Heavy dips, light dips, bodyweight dips, haha whatever the case I would recommend reps in the 8-12 range. Training for strength, I would say 5-8 is adequate.
    "You know you're a bodybuilder when people ask you what day it is and you reply with a muscle group"


    Short term goals:

    1.) Weighted Dips 45lbs. x ?
    2.) EZ Bar Curl 100lbs. x ?
    3.) DB Bench Press 80s x ?

    Long term goals:

    1.) Hit 190 and stay lean.
