.......interesting things about fitness, strength, diet and performance.
Hi Chris,I've always and will always nap. I take 10 minute naps in my office around 2-3. I close my door, kick my feet up and I'm gone in 30 seconds.Off topic;Dips and weighted dips.What's your opinion?Have a great day.Marc
Hi MarcI realy like dips. I've always been stronger in them than the Bench press and they feel a more functional move. When I'm climbing / scrambling the ability to support myself in that position is really useful. The problem is getting good bars to use at a gym. you can improvise various options but a solid set of dip stands are great.I usually take a fairly narrow grip - too wide puts a lot of stress on the shoulders. Weighted with a dumbell held between the knees to keep the reps low.Sometimes I'll do a timed isometric hold in with elbows at 90 degrees for 30 seconds.
Chris,Thank you!Dips don't hurt me....but since I do a good amount of them, I started thinking about my shoulder joint/socket and got curious if I was doing damage.I'm going to try the isometric hold. I've never done that. (although I do at times, do very deliberate slow ones)Have a great day...big day here in the USA.Marc
