An exercise you would do in a gym
. Basically consits of two parallel bars raised to some height. You are to stand between the bars and raise/lower yourself using only your hands. It works your triceps
and latissimus dorsi
as well as a bit of your shoulders.
Note that sometimes there are assist
ed dips. Basically there's a counter weighted leg rest which allows you to control how much weight you're going to be lifting. If you want to work on your tricepts I suggest this.
There are a couple of drawbacks:
- Your wrists WILL hurt if not done properly (and quite possible even if done properly)
- Your shoulders will also hurt the first few times you do it
Just like with everything you do, consult your doctor
if you're unsure or experiencing weird pain. Good luck.
