    Impressive weight.

    Before I continue I want to say I am sure I cannot do that.

    Now, that was no where near just above parrallel. Your arms were at a 65-70 degree angle. You are going to be flamed.

    Again, I am not that strong.

    Like said, nowhere near paralell, but strong nonetheless.

    If you said you do it paralell, this is no proof

    Umm that was a ton of weight but whats the point of doing it with such a poor range of motion ? Your only gonna blow out your elbows

    Is that the equivalent of the rack lockout during the bench press to aid in your sticking point of the dip? What can you real dip at?

    similar. i train it to improve the punching power of my straight blast, which is a continuous chain of 6 to 8 inch punches thrown rapidly. i can do parralell dips with 175lbs round my waist for 8 reps.

    Yeah, we'll see what Dan181 has to say about your suppossed 'lying', but hey, when doing 175 lbs tied to you on dips, isn't that just short of 4 plates?

    Okay, thanks for clearing that up for me, I really wasn't sure what the purpose of it was before the clarification. So far i've only done weighted dips once and I got 90lbs x 3. I think it is a good idea to post videos when you claim to lift a lot. I'll make a video when I hit a 225lbs bench, 405 squat, and 405 DL, even though they are easily believable lift.

    to the top of your head? you do a lot of partials, I am newer to lifting (about 6 months, I don't do anything partial yet.

    ive been training since i was 12, and partials give you much better functional strength, perfect for mma. i still do full range reps, but they are more dangerous cos of the stretch involved. when i squat, i never ever go below parralell, its askin for knackered knees and lower back, sayin that, i've done 50 reps to just above parralell with 4 plates a side, and ive done 6 inch partials with 10 plates a side for 5 reps.
