Coach's thoughts on today:
Weighted dips are ALPHA AS F...
I don't mind if these dips are rings or P.Bars,  let's just work on good ROM and stable shoulders. I generally do these facing away from the squat rack when doing PBar because it allows me to lean forward loading more into the chest. If you haven't done them that way give it a try. Or, if you always do them that way experiment with a more vertical torso so yo can push more into the triceps. Learn how to feel what the body is telling you and what little adjustments to make and when to make them.
Bench dips for those building up dip strength.
While doing this run here is what I'd like people to focus on: Breathe. Don't let the run stress you try to control your breathing.
