I decided to see how much I could do last night, got up to a 130lb Db for 6 reps
I've done 55lbs@ 160 lbs. As for right now I don't know.
What do you guys use to do weighted dips and pullups? Do you just hold a Db in between your legs?
a dip belt
Weight belt with a chain. Wrap chain around dumbbell or plate.
what does it matter what you can or can't dip with, form over weight
Most I've tried is bw+45lbs for 6
Weighted Dips are usually my last exercises for chest and I am usually feeling it by then. Most i did was 2 45lbs plates for 5-6 reps w/ bw @ 215. Just usually stick w/ 1 plate for 4x10.
135 two times
enough weight thats its uncomfortable and counter productive basically
any less and you'd be stupid right
dirtysouth and stagornized, aren't you both pretty skinny? I'm willing to bet your form is horrible
I agree, more than 1 plate and my form starts to get shitty and shoulders start hurting
i used to do 135 for 6...i dont do them anymore though
70 is the heaviest I have gone.
i use a dip machine with weight stack that you sit in...it goes to 250 and I pin a few 45's to it. Much easier on my shoulders and elbows and I can stay very strict for 12-15 reps
I am not really a big fan of dips.
too hard on the ego?
Don't you know it.
No, I just usually do CG rack presses and skullcrushers, but I think I am going to swap skullcrushers for tate presses.
I don't know what a dip is?
look one AV up
Bah dum psssshhhhhhh.
He asked what the most you can do weighted dips with. So i said the most that i can do them with. I don't work out with that. Of course you are going to think my form is shitty because you don't belive anything I say. I'm 6'1 200 lbs, so i'm sure thats really skinny to your standards. The only thing cool about you is your diet.
My form goes to shit somewhere after +70-90 so I stick around there,
