Parallel Bar Dips Benefits

Benefits of Parallel Bar Dips

Dips are great for getting a broad looking chest that you are trying to create is what will give you that V shape which is what all bodybuilders are striving for. One should always be weary of the potential damage that you might be doing to your shoulder and do not dip down too low.

The farther you dip down the more you will be working your chest but the problem is that you will also be stressing your rotator cuff excessively so it is better to stop the movement just past parallel. That means that your upper arms are parallel to the floor.

This means that is strongly advised that you take the dip down to the point where your upper arms are just past the point of being parallel to the floor and no farther. Even if you are very flexible and you can dip all the way down without a problem you need to be weary of the potential damage that you can cause.

Parallel Bar Dips Muscles Worked

The parallel bar dips work the chest shoulders and triceps, this is a great movement that has been done by bodybuilders since the sport started. Doing the movement correctly will isolate the pec-delt tie-ins which give you the added benefit of developing broad pecs which give the impression of size. Parallel bar dips are also going to isolate your triceps.

One can select many different ways to increase when doing parallel bar dips. You can start out, with 3 sets of 8 reps, and work up to 8 sets of 8 reps or even 10 sets of 10 reps.

In my book “The Muscle Experiment” I talk about how I was able to put on a solid 39lbs of solid muscle in less than 6 months with bodyweight training, and exactly how YOU can do it as well. In case you haven't downloaded The Muscle Experiment, I suggest you download it immediately and start implementing the little known techniques. This alone should put you on the road to massive size and strength.

To your success,
