Meltdown Training, subsituting dips?

Long story short, the jokers at my gym placed the dip station in the cardio room and not in the weight room. If I run over to that room to get to the dip station, I’m taking a 30 second break in the Meltdown circuit, which can’t be good. Is there something that’s acceptable to substitute for the dips in the Meltdown circuit, eg, close grip bench, overhead tricep extensions, etc? Don’t get me wrong, I friggin’ love doing dips, but the break in the circuit I assume would cripple the intentions of the program.

Have you started the program yet? Dude, I NEED 30 seconds sometimes just to catch my breath! I don’t think it would hurt too much.
