The difference between dips for chest and dips for triceps
There are two types of dips on the parallel bars, and it is important to know the difference of these two exercises. The first kind of dips is designed for chest and one for triceps. Because both of these exercises belong to the group of complex exercises, it is recommended that they be part of your training program.
Dips is an exercise that you can do with their own weight or with additional load (depending on your strength and readiness).
The main difference between dips for chest and dips for triceps lies in the depth of the movement.
Note: Before performing the exercises dips is recommended to have a good warm up for shoulders.

Strength and Size | Tips
Often we ask what is the connection between power and size? Bodybuilders train for size and therefore you should train differently than a powerlifter who train for strength. You often hear that you do not need to lift big weight, in order to become stronger. Wrong! The strength and size go together and the only way to become larger to also become more and more powerful.
For those on steroids, there are different rules. They have increased protein synthesis and they can increase their muscle mass and definition much easier than natural bodybuilders. Therefore it is extremely important for exercisers who do not use steroids and having an average genetics to first strengthen muscles.
It is not necessary to stimulate the muscle directly to become bigger and stronger.
Here are beginning to apply a complex exercise. If you redouble your bench press in the course of a few years, then how can your arms, shoulders and back can stay the same size? They also need to grow in order to support the weight that you’re lifting.
While you are in the early stages of building muscle forget the muscular symmetry. First, empower, become larger, and then start working on body symmetry. Leave aside the isolation exercises and pumping with a smaller increase weight until you are able to squat or bench press to work with serious weight. Concentrate on the most complex exercises such as the squat, deadlift, bench press, military press, rowing, pull-ups and dips.
