Chest Dip (between benches)

Chest Dip (between benches)

Classification

Utility: Basic
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push

Instructions

Preparation

Stand between ends of two benches. Place hands on ends of benches with fingers off ends of benches. Grip should be somewhat wide. Position feet out in front with legs straight, heels on floor, and torso upright.

Execution

Lower body by bending arms, allowing elbows to flare out to sides. When slight stretch is felt in chest or shoulders, push body up until arms are straight. Repeat.

Comments

In above clip, hands are positioned at ends of main segments of benches with fingers between gaps. On standard benches, hands should be placed near ends of benches. Perform on higher benches if slight stretch is not felt. Also see Triceps Dip (between benches).

Easier

Bend knees to decrease difficulty.

Harder

Intensity can be added by placing weight lap or performing Chest Dips on parallel or dip bars.
