    Default Dips

    Howdy,
    Lately I've been smashing the dips.
    I've been doing them first up when strength levels are high.
    My question is how do you warm up? I can't just use BW because it's like doing a working set straight up.

    I put my feet on floor and and take some weight off but it sux?

    How do you warm up?

    I warm up with just body weight
    First warmup is 16 to 20 reps BW
    Second set 15 reps+ 5kg
    Third set 12 to 14 + 10kg
    Fourth set 10 reps + 20kg

    I do these upright for the tris after doing bench

    I never have warmed up for dips...just straight into it. Even when adding weight, I'll do those sets first, and maybe 1-2 sets at the end with just bodyweight.

    Dips are an exercise I find I only have 5 or so sets in me. After that, even if I wait 5-6 minutes for another set, that set will be shit coz triceps just get fried at a certain point and I can barely do another 2-3 reps.

    Yeah i do them upright for tri's more, so 2 sets or 15 for warm up and the start adding the weight, 10kg, 20kg and 30kg.

    Usually do them after chest press and other stuff so already warmed up.
    BW unassisted every time at the moment.

    Sometimes done as a superset with tri pressdowns. In that case, the number i do per set goes way down ... tired...

    Do some light shoulder presses if you like.

    But really, if you feel alright on the first rep or two and you can move quite easily and controlled you'll be right, it's the last rep were all the action is regardless of the weight and number of rep's used.
    Do a second set with some weight around the waist.


    Actions verify priorities
