    Dips...........Question.


    What muscle group would you put dips under (triceps? lats? chest?), and how many sets and how often should they be done?

    Thanks !

    Triceps and Chest and depending on the angle and arm positioning you can make it a chest or tricep dominate exercise.

    Sets and frenquency should cohere with the rest of your training program. I do about 3 sets every chest workout day.

    Yeah, it might look "sweet", but it doesn't feel too sweet when you rip your ac joint to shreds. I used to crank out heavy weight dips, and one day i felt the worst pain in my clavicle as i was going for that last rep. I injured the ac joint severely and couldnt lift for about 3 weeks. In fact it still hurts to this day, and i'm on anti-inflammatories. My bench is nowhere near what it used to be. So, just be careful when your doing weighted dips, they can be a very dangerous exercise. I know it looks cool with all that weight dangling off you, but your putting your body in a very compromising position.

    I don't add any weight to my dips for that very reasonfbx...I can feel the andgle get compromised when I get tired and as anyone knows, when you exhaust your tris they don't give out slowly.
