I am wanting to stick with the dips because I have never been a strong bencher...I just plateau too easy, and it is the only exercise I seem to plateau in. I don't know why nor do I care, a combo of dips/flyes seems to be working better for me anyway. So in response to someone asking me if I can do 50 dips, the answer is no. I can probably do around 20 without any weight, and I figured that is more than enough to start adding weight. I still do rows in addition to pullups...no plateauing there.
But actually I do have another question about dips....I know most people do them with two parallel bars or handles. What if the only space you have is a counter corner? Is it good form if your palms are flat on the counter to do them as opposed to gripping a bar?
