Ring dips are a challenging movement for many athletes, and can cause us to put ourselves in some less than ideal positions as we work on them.
We frequently discuss the importance of a neutral head position when squatting and deadlifting. It’s also important to remember during body weight movements. This video from MobilityWOD explains the significance of a neutral head position when performing dips. A broken, over-extended position is likely the result of some missing range of motion elsewhere. It’s inefficient, and negatively impacts our power output. There’s the opportunity for a lot of practice dipping Tuesday. Chin back, ribs down, butt tight, and dip away.
