Dipping Machine + Weights. Help w/ Routine


#1

Hi everyone, first time posting and am in need of some help. I have done the whole tv exercise routines (P90X upto 76 days, Insanity twice), but I've let myself go and dont feel like doing that again. So, I have a machine like the title says and I have some light weights like 10s, 15s, and 20s along with this machine.

Now since I'm not using a dvd to have someone guide me whats proper to do, I was curious if someone would lead me in the right direction for a routine using my dip machine and weights. If it helps... I'm around 5'6 and weigh about 160. I want to get down to 145 and tone up (I have no goal day). I know google has everything, but I came to these forums (using google lol) hoping I would get some proper guidance. Any help is appreciated and thanks.

P.S. I obviously know what's possible on the dip machine, but I really have no clue how many reps I should do. Also no clue what the rest/wait is between reps are. Not sure if you wait 1 minute or do short intervals like 20secs (like the dvds I followed).

This is the machine I have believe and recently got for 100.
