Fixing Your Dips

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.

    WOD: 4 + 19 (with purple band)
    WOD on 3/7/11: 4 rounds even

    Nice to see that my double-unders decided to make an appearance. Unfortunately, My ring dips haven’t improved much (and like to take the skin off my right arm).
