Thanks for the info and the youtube idea Scott, always comin through. I can't find the clip you are looking for but I found a different one. Here it is - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVXagkyfGTg
I noticed a few things I was doing differently than in this video - when I was trying to do these today, I was actually trying to tilt my whole lower body forward, ie: my ass along with my legs. I think that made it near impossible for me, because basically I was trying to put my butt ahead of my upper body. Also, in the video he raises his legs forward more than I was. And last, his hand position is like a normal dip, my knuckles were facing each other.
There is another video on youtube with a guy doing the same dip with the same form as the first video but with a 45. Here it is just for shits - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Fc0qCa18dg . Both of the videos are titled gironda dips.
I know I can do them like these guys in the videos, but is this correct? Only things different with these dips from normal triceps dips are the chin in the chest, flared elbows, and legs brought forward, what do you think Scott, are these Gironda style? Also I remember reading somewhere that Gironda says the bars should be 33 inches apart, seems like a lot to me. Unfortunately, I there's no power rack in my gym either. In fact, I've been to every gym in my town (7 gyms) and none of them do. It's a different world over here man.
