    I do them weighted with a 45 or just body weight. This is a great exercise for chest or tri's depending on how you lean.

    Re: Weighted Dips

    I have to do dips first also but most times can't do them at all as they kill my shoulders

    Re: Weighted Dips

    I do them occasionally. I love the pumps I get from them. I'll do a set or 2 BW then work up to 2 plates x 6-8 reps.

    Re: Weighted Dips

    They have always been a staple for me. My gym is pretty small, squat rack, bench and a dip stand.

    Dips are awesome. We have a real good dip machine at our gym that you can load up so you don't have to hang those damn weights on your nuts, lol.

    Re: Weighted Dips

    Dips aggravate old injuries. I've moved on to cables for the movement. I can get some great angles leaning in or out, but as far as weight, weight has little to do with my goals these days.

    Re: Weighted Dips

    My dip stand is tapered. I use a close grip for tri's and wide grip will tear up my chest.

    Re: Weighted Dips

    I used to do weighted dips, pullup, chin ups, but now i weigh 258lbs so i just stick to doing them with body-weight x 15 for a set of 4

    a lot easier on the body, especially my elbows

    Re: Weighted Dips

    I use 2 x 25's for all sets. Usually 10-15 reps. This is usually my last exercise on a chest day so my tris are already pretty smoked.

    I like the 25s because they don't hang as low as 45's.
