Tip: Dips With Band

Adding a band to your dips not only increases the tension at the top, it'll also naturally bend you forward for better pec stimulation.

Manipulate tension to trigger new gains. Remember, hypertrophy is stimulated mostly by muscular tension. Muscles get the most tension where the resistance curve is at its peak in the concentric (lifting) point of a movement.

For dips, anchor a band with a heavy dumbbell at your feet. Placing the band around your neck looks awkward, but it will naturally bend you forward and cause the pecs to get into a deep stretch. This will also create more tension at the top of the rep.
