Top 10 Dips Exercises
1. Bench dips
Stand with your back facing the bench and hold it on the edge. Rest your heel on the ground or put your legs on another bench of the same height and then use your arm strength to lift yourself up. This strengthens your chest, triceps and shoulder fronts.
2. Parallel bar dips
Stand between a pair of parallel bars and hold them. Put your entire body weight on your hands and lift yourself up until your hands are completely straight and then lower your body till your arms form 90 degrees. They remarkably help in chest development and broaden the shoulders.
3. Straight bar dips
Place your hands on one bar which comes relatively above your chest and raise yourself up till your hands are completely stretched. This chest dips also works on your triceps and gives you a widened upper back.
4. Korean dips
The straight bar dip in which the bars are behind your back. It’s more challenging than the straight bars and requires full body strength. In this exercise you also work on your lower back, abs and glutes to prevent yourself from swinging.
