I have recently become interested in the techniques employed and promoted by Vince Gironda and I have two questions that I would appreciate clarification with, if possible.
- Vince seemed to recommend angled bar parallel dips as his preferred chest exercise. But finding said dip station is almost impossible, especially out here.
Do wide grip straight bar parallel dips work as well so long as the elbows remain flared out, the chin to chest, and feet in the appropriate position? Or will it work another muscle or is it not as effective?
- In “Unleashing the Wild Physique,” Vince listed several exercises per muscle group. When it comes to thighs, he seems to have preferred the sissy squats. However, there is also a VERY similar exercise called the Delinger squat. They seem exactly the same with the exception of how close the foot placement is. Is there any other difference? If so, can you clarify the difference between Sissy Squats and Delinger Squats?
Thanks for any input.
