Everyone on this site loves bench press. You all love bench press because you’re good at the bench press. You’re all good at the bench press because (don’t lie) you want to have a high max.
Bench is a fantastic exersize but so are dips. Weighted Dips hit the Latissimus Dorsi in addition to the Triceps, Delts, and Pecs trained in the Bench press. Weighted dips allow you to do more total weight as well.
For an athelete who is only interested in gaining strenght are Weighted Dips better or does the Bench Press still hold the rank as the queen mother of upper body exersizes?
