I’m pretty new to strength training - I’ve spent most of my time training as an “all-rounder” but have recently decided to go down the strongman route.
My question is; My max on weighted dips is a LOT more than my max bench. If you need specific numbers I’ll give them but there is a big difference.
I am benching with my elbows tucked etc and have read all of Dave Tate’s benching articles and I often read the strength forum (which I put into practise), yet my bench is stalling and my dips are flying ahead, despite the movements being so similar.
Is this just a case of needing to bench more often? I was using weighted dips as a way of improving my bench but there seems to be minimal carryover…
Thanks for any replies
