Ever wondered why everyone does dips? You probably do them too and you know they're good, but do you know why?

Here are 5 reasons why dips are so amazing:

1. One of the best chest exercises for men

Dips are one of the best exercises you can do if you want to develop a wider chest and get that lean, masculine look

They isolate the chest muscles better than any other compound exercise for the chest and keep your chest from becoming too bulky or unevenly developed. The deeper you go, the more you stretch your pectoral muscles. Just make sure that you pay attention to what your shoulders can handle and don't lower yourself more than 90 degrees.

2. Ideal if you want to develop a V-shaped body

Dips make your whole upper body stronger. They engage your arms, shoulders, chest and your upper back at once. If you are looking to develop some of the muscles that lead to a lean V-shaped upper body, you might want to try doing wide grip dips.

3. Stabilize muscles in core and back

In order to lift your entire body weight when doing dips, you need to keep your whole body tight. As a result, you train not only your upper body, but also your core, legs and lower back, which are crucial for so many day-to-day activities.

4. Easily modified

Dips can be easily modified so you can incorporate them into workouts of all levels and intensity.

5. One of the top 3 triceps strengthening exercises

Dips are rated as one of the top three triceps-strengthening exercises

The gravitational pull on your body and the lack of momentum during the dip movement keeps the muscles contracted throughout the exercise, so they allow you to train each of the three triceps heads equally, which is an advantage that many other triceps exercises do not have.
