Grasp the handles with an overhand grip a little wider than shoulder width. Lower your body down with an upright torso and elbows close to your sides. When your elbow angle is near 90 degrees or less, (your comfort level will vary) press back up keeping the upright posture and flex your triceps. Repeat for reps.
Parallel Dips is an excellent compound move the dip is an easy station to use. No setting up of benches or special bars or dumbbells. It’s also a great display of upper body strength and shows true control of body weight. The dip also has real world application and can develop supportive, natural strength to assist bench work and joint stability. Adding a weighted belt or fixing a dumbbell between your feet can increase resistance quickly and easily.
