I’ve heard that teenagers and “young-uns” should not be doing weighted bar dips or Dips in general for that matter.
It supposedly causes problems with the sternum.
I have never found any evidence of this being true and I did them as a teen with no problems.
My younger brother (16) and stong/lean like myself is starting to venture into weighted dips at the end of his chest/tri workout.
I was wondering if anybody had any proof to qualify or disprove this myth.
I did search but found people talking about pull-overs, etc.
I found a few articles that talked about doing dips but no discussion on these implications, etc.
