Parallel Dips Exercise
Hello Guys,

I am new to this and I enjoy reading all the information from this forum.

I have a question regarding parallel dips exercise. I am doing this exercise on regular basis. It is my favorite one.

For example when training my triceps I have noticed that I do not feel a strong muscle fever (on next day) after doing parallel dips in comparison when I am doing skull-crushers or simple cable extensions (I know that the last ones are isolating exercises) but the dips are compound one, however I am feeling that I am missing something, I feel that I am not training my triceps well when I do not have such muscle fever the next day after workout (when I am using mostly dips). I am trying to keep a straight and controlled movement when doing dips focusing on my triceps + I am using additional weight and I have a good pump during workout, but noting on next day, I fell that my triceps are tired but I do not feel that muscle fever (I think you know what I mean).

I still wish to use parallel dips in my triceps work out for a long time. But I am not sure if I am doing everything right. Can you advice me something, please.

Thank You,

Don't worry so much about what you feel after you train. Muscle soreness is a side effect, not the goal. If you are getting bigger and stronger then you are doing something right. You may want to consider weighted dips, but don't go over 45 lb.
