Guide for Dips

  • It is easy to cheat when doing dips because of its difficult nature. Thus if you are not strong enough, use a resistance band instead of cheating 
  • Pull back the shoulders, pinch your shoulder blades together and push the chest forward
  • Lean your upper body forward to exercise your chest more than your triceps
  • Let the angle between the upper arms and body be a little bigger if you want to exercise chest more than the triceps
  • Keep your shoulders down
  • Press inwards and upwards on the way up to maximize the chest load
  • Warm up your shoulders properly before you start, this is important
  • Perform the exercise slowly
  • Feel free to use a weight strapped to your waist if becomes too easy using just your body weight
