    Ever wondered why your chest got so much activation from doing dips? This is probably what was happening 🙂

  2. if you want to train chest and triceps without risk of injury stay away from dips especially weighted dips

  7. Dude…you're terrific! I'm officially back in the gym, so I will be working this in my plan. Thanks for the encouragement, Scott!

  8. Hi, Question about this video. Do you still stand behind the idea of doing dips for chest like this? Especially I like to know how deep you have to go. You talk about full range of motion, but I'm worried about shoulder injury. Found this video "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX_nSOOJIsE" who talks about when you go to deep you are doing "bad work". At this point I'm confused about what is the best way to do the dips for chest. Anyway, thanks for posting this video and although it's old, hopefully you can still respond.

  9. I wish I had abs like that lol. My lower abs area has some fat that wont go away even at very low bodyfat kinda suck.

  10. parllel bar two one is long and another is very shorten touch the floor that enhance to do best work out stretch relax workout abdomen exercise

  11. are weighted dips coupled with benching enough to build triceps or do you need to do you need to add stuff like the overhead extension?

  12. Nice video, short and with lots of direct info. I do wonder, however, if this guy normally looks like this or did some serious work and dehydration before filming to accentuate his physique.

  13. Scott, the link to your forum has a Symantec-issued security certificate. The Chrome browser says these aren't valid anymore.

  14. THANK YOUUUUU! I APPRECIATE THIS, SCOTT HERMAN LOOOOOLLLLLLLL! 🙄🙄🙄🙄🤜🤜🤜🤜🤜🤜🤜🤜🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕😡😡😡😡😡😡😭😂🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🐾🐾😫🤔

  15. Woah, his accent. I just came from one of the more recent videos. whered his accent go? Did he move to a different state?

  16. Great tips! On my local gym they have a very good dip machine where you can adjust the bars to be closer or wider so that you can focus on either triceps or pecs/chest

  17. I clicked the thumbnail link at the end of the video to "https://www.scotthermanfitness.com/recipes.php" and received this error message: "The owner of www.scotthermanfitness.com has configured their website improperly.

  18. It's easier to do dips 'for chest' which is why most people lean so far forward- they're not strong enough yet to perform tricep dips.

  19. This so called expert will have yall injured. Hes going ENTIRELY too low on those dips, you're asking for shoulder issues

  20. i noticed by allowing the torso to be horizontal (like a pushup) and letting the legs stay verticle-ish & centred underneath seems to give a good body weight bench press… and extend the legs out bit by bit to change the emphasis.
    Works for me atleast.
    I also find standing on a block (a milk crate in my case) lets me set from the top, which seems help (personally)

  21. I have one question , why when performing the chest dips ,we have to look down not look forward , I tried both variations, it feels the same . if the reason is about focusing more attention towards your chest , we can do it just like any other exercises, focus it mentally isn't it ?

  22. That chest version will fuck your shoulders. Don’t do it. Only do the “tricep” one as it hits the full chest, inner shoulders and triceps.

  23. My shoulders aren’t flexible, there is no way I can lower myself so that my tricep is parallel to the floor at the bottom of the dip. Is it still worth doing them but as far as I can go down?

  24. Going so deep ,wouldnt you just rip the shit out of your rottary cuffs? A ton of people play foitball.baseball,tennnis etc.
