Parallel Bar Dip Station by BRONSON
The BRONSON portable Dip Station is perfect for performing triceps dips, rows, and more during your workout. The foam grip handles keep things safe and comfortable when building muscle and burning calories, while pads on the bottom protect the floor and maintain stability during your workout. Very simple to put together, and moving it around the home gym.
- Simple, portable total-body strengthener, the Dip Bars offers versatility in strength training with just one piece of equipment.
- Work the arms, chest, back, and core muscles using your own body weight as resistance.
- Suited for group exercise, sports conditioning, agility training, personal training, and home gyms.
- The Dip Bars works the arms, chest, back and core muscles like no other.
- Participants use their own body weight as resistance and decide what level is right for them by "self-spotting".
- Self-spotting means the legs can be used to assist the user to perform exercises and/or when they cannot continue an exercise.
- Dip Bars can be attached to each other for increased stability (Bars can also be used when are not attached).

The path to developing optimal power output from the shoulders is this: Perform a wide swath of exercises that stabilize the shoulders from a variety of ranges.
The pushup and bench press teach you how to stabilize your shoulders out in front of your body. The strict-press and push-press teach you how to stabilize loads overhead. And the dip teaches you how to generate stability while your arms are by your side.
Even though the dip is technically a pressing element, it forces the same stabilization demands as carrying heavy objects. The dip transfers to tasks in daily life like carrying a suitcase or getting up out of an armchair.
Although the underlying principles of the dip are the same as midrange and overhead movements-create external rotation torque, pulling your shoulder blades back-it's a new stimulus for the shoulder. If people don't spend time working in these extension ranges, they are more likely to compensate forward into a bad position when carrying or performing basic tasks with their arms by their side or behind their bodies. Plus, being able to perform a full-range quality dip is a prerequisite to more dynamic movements like the muscle-up: If you can't stay in control in the bottom position of the dip, creating spontaneous torque as you transition into a muscle-up is hopeless.
The dip is a complex exercise that requires enormous strength, control, and shoulder range-of-motion. For these reasons, you need to understand how to scale the movement.
To scale the dip, start in the top position and make sure you can stabilize your shoulders in a good position with your arms locked out. If you don't have the strength or range-of-motion to lower into the bottom position, you can use a band to make the movement easier.
Just because you have the strength to perform the movement doesn't mean you're doing it right. There is a lot that can go wrong. For example, people often struggle to keep their forearms vertical and load their chest and triceps because they are missing shoulder range-of-motion or don't follow the proper load-order sequence. Instead, they drive their elbows back, overextend, and keep their chest upright, and then wiggle around in the bottom position in search of a mechanical advantage. This is where a lot of shoulder damage occurs and why people experience pain in their sternum when they dip.
