Weighted Dips

Category: Supplemental, accessory

Muscles Targeted: Triceps, chest, shoulders

The weighted dip has been met with love and criticism in the strength training world. While many think it's a great way to build your upper body, others believe it to be a nightmare for your shoudlers.

As with everything, moderation is the key.

We've all done dips before, so the technique is going to be that different. Although you may have to play around a little bit in getting to the dip bar with extra weight around your hips. I have often used a small box or something similar to assist me in getting to the dip bar.

If you have a fair amount of upper body strength, you may suprise yourself on how much weight you can do. Don't limit yourself.

Best done for higher reps (8-20).
