Chest Dips Form Tips Add Weight If you can successfully complete sets of 15+ reps with bodyweight then consider adding weight. Increasing resistance is an excellent variable to adjust for continued progression and muscular overload. Chest dips are similar to tricep dips but—as you can probably guess—they work the chest muscles instead.
Whether you have your own parallel bars, a gym membership, or some furniture that you can do the motion from, chest dips are simple exercises that can create great results. Contract the abs to maintain form. Don’t lock out the elbows at the top position. Shoulder drops slightly below the elbow in bottom position. Head neutral: Don’t look up or down.
To build the chest, do full-range dips with an additional load of 50% bodyweight for 6-8 reps. Chest dips performed with a wide grip and the elbows flared to the sides, target the outer chest better than pushups, bench presses, or any other exercise. In doing so, they give you that huge, wide chest that resembles a set of stone slabs set on your chest sideways.
Chest dips give you wider chest development than the bench press. How to Perform Dips for Chest To put the focus on your chest during dips, start by using bars that place your hands outside of shoulder width. If you have access to bars that are wide on one end and narrow on the other, use the wide end for chest work. This is the dip in all its glory. One of the best exercises you can perform to build the chest, triceps and shoulders, parallel bar dips train these muscles in a completely different angle and range of motion than push-ups and bench pressing.
Unlike the push-up, parallel bar dips provide no support, so you are forced to lift your entire bodyweight. This kind of exercise makes your chest look not only bigger, but also wider. For more info see the Ultimate Chest Guide article. Functional movement The skill and strength you build with Dips will transfer to any athletic activity in which you have to master your own bodyweight.
The right form for Chest Dips Set up for Dips that target the ches. For complete chest development, 1-2 free weight pressing exercises in combination with a flye exercise is really all you need. My top picks would be the flat or decline dumbbell press and the high-to-low cable crossover for each of those movement patterns. Similarly, many lifters consider dips to be the best exercise for building up the front side of the upper body and their number one chest exercise. Going to or just below parallel on dips (upper arm parallel to the floor) will work the muscles effectively while sparing the joints.
