If you find regular dips on bars or gymnastics rings to be difficult, you’re not alone. Dips are hard – especially on rings – and many people can’t do a single one.
But take heart, because many gyms have a particular machine (called an assisted chest dip machine) that will provide some lift and effectively reduce your body weight.
It’s much better to use this machine than try to do body weight dips that are beyond your abilities. You’ll inevitably end up using poor form and risk getting injured.
