What are the Benefits of Weighted Dips?
Weighted dips have been used for centuries to help lose weight. They may even be one of the most effective ways to burn calories. The main benefit of weighted dips is that they can be done anywhere and in any weather conditions. You don’t need special equipment or anything else except your own bodyweight! If you want to try it out, just grab some weights from home and go for a dip!
The other great thing about weighted dips is that they are very easy to do. There’s no complicated equipment required.
You only need a chair, some towels, and your own bodyweight. No fancy machines or anything like that! Plus, you can easily add weights if needed.
How to Do Weighted Dips:
1) Find a comfortable place where you can sit down comfortably.
(You might need to use a towel.)
2) Grab some towels and lay them out on the floor.
3) Lay out some heavy objects such as books, magazines, newspapers, etc.
, so that you have something to lift up with each hand while sitting down. (Don’t worry about getting dirty!
These things will be easy to clean up later.)
4) Place your hands on the heavy objects and lift up your bottom off the ground.
(Do not put any part of your legs on the ground at any time.)
5) If you want, you can put some extra weight on your back or in your pockets.
6) Make sure that you are dipping down at a 90 degree angle.
Your shoulders should not come up over your elbows at any time.
7) Slowly come back up and do it again.
How Often and How Long?
You can do weighted dips as often and for as long as you want. If you have time, they can make a great addition to your existing workout routine. You can also save them for rest days, if you prefer to only work out a few days a week.
Weighted dips are not just for the upper body! When you lift your own body weight, you also target your core.
That’s because your core has to work hard to keep your body stable. As you get stronger, you will be able to lift more weight and really target your core that way.
How Much Can You Lift?
You can lift as much as you want, but it is recommended that you don’t start out by trying to lift your entire body weight right away. This could lead to injury and you probably won’t have much fun. Start out small and work your way up as you get stronger. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
1) If you are a child, you can start by dipping with one hand.
2) As you get older, you can start by dipping with one arm and both legs.
