I’m considering making some changes to my training schedule and had a question regarding dips and the triceps. Being that dips work all three, the long head and lateral head, and also the medial head at the top of the move, would doing nothing but weighted dips for my triceps be enough to keep growing?
Over the last 15 months, I’ve Weighted Dip and Rope Press Downs 3x per week and my triceps are the largest part on my body. I credit weighted dips for the majority of the major development from when I started.
The reason I want to switch to Weighted Dips only, I feel like when I get over to the cable press downs my triceps are so pre-exhausted from the weighted dips. Then I have to go lighter, and higher reps. I also noticed on days I throw in the cable tricep press downs I’m burning out and not recovering as efficiently.
With that said is weighted dips enough for complete development and mass?
