Chest Dips

Why It Works: These dips hit your lower chest muscles and, because you have to support your bodyweight while both lowering and lifting, it gives you a good burn without a lot of reps. These are another of Paul’s favorites. He does reps until failure when he’s looking for big gains.

How to Do It: Using a set of bars slightly wider than your shoulder width, place your hands on top of the bars and lift yourself up. Tilt your body slightly forward to ensure you’re using your chest, not your triceps. Begin to lower — but not too deep into the movement, otherwise your triceps will take over. Lift back up and repeat.
