i tried doing wide grip dips with leaning forward and my power really decreased. i also didnt feel chest too much.
i switched to a little narrower grip (but still a bit wider than shoulder width) and my power really increased and also i felt much more stretch and chest work.
is this normal?[/quote]
If I dip with a wide grip my shoulders get chewed up pretty bad and I cant go very deep.
I use a slightly wider than shoulder width grip and I can pretty much go down to my knuckles in my armpits.
I think it is normal, and its probably a helthier long term option to do narrow dips over wide grip dips.
I’m sure someone a hell of a lot more experienced than me will chime in though.
