Bar Dips

The Bar Dip Exercise

The bar dip is one of the best exercises for the chest, back, shoulders, and triceps. Most dipping bars are similar to gymnastic parallel bars so that when you do the exercise you must use the neutral grip, with your palms facing your body.

If you want even greater development, you should use bars on which you can also use a pronated, supinated or 45 degree grip as well as different widths for the grip as for example on adjustable dip bars. This allows for even greater strength of the muscles involved as well as bringing other muscles into play.
