w Bench dip problem

hey, I need help with a bench dip problem, usually when I do them I put a dumbell on my stomach? area for the extra weight, but the problem is sometimes they fall/roll off causing problems. Any ideas of how to keep that from happening? I tried doing regular dips but whenever I go over there its always taken.

I used to, but you kinda get the same problem when stacking plates, unless I'm missing something.

Not sure what to tell you. If your having such a big problem , don't do them. Just wait your turn and use the dip machine. Or you could tie a rope around the db's and have at er.

i agree for all that you might as well just use the dip rack. and if you want to add more wegith get one of those belts where you can attach weight on

Stop doing bench dips and try parallel bar dips, perhaps?

Yes do this, just do dips but do them correctly, always lock out at the top and go down till your upper arms are parallel to the floor.
