Bodyweight dipping...

Just curious as to the most bodyweight dips in a set anyone here has managed? I reckon I could get 25 give or take a couple of reps, I'm only looking to increase reps at this moment in time and am curious as to what would be considered decent...
Cheers

    Wow, I wondered what those funny words said. I agree it has a big endurance element to it, but you need to be strong to dip your own bodyweight a **** load of times...afaik we don't have an endurance forum...

    30 reps at 88kg would be pretty impressive IMO.

    you need endurance rather than strenght to do this. there be some guys on here especially the lighter powerlifter with a good becnh who be doing 40+

    my best was a few years ago when i do my BW (100kg) + 60kg for about 6 reps. and that was near the end of a work out.
    so no idea what i get if i repped out as 1st set. But it would be a endurance event as its easier to dip your body weight then bench press your own body weight.

    Best was 6sets of 18 at 75kgbw, could never do 6x20.
    Used to 5x5 bw+25 which is more constructive.
    Again i'm a light fcuker

    Iv done 30 reps at 24 stone - I could probably do 10-15 reps now at 26 stone - but dips play hell with my AC joint so I raerly do them!

    Form and ROM varies so much from person to person that asking these kind of things about dips and chins is pretty meaningless IMO.

    Serious question: Are bodyweight dips supposed to be difficult?

    I was thinking the same. I weigh 270lbs and do dips most shoulder and arm sessions. Bwt x 8, then bwt plus 10-kilos x 8 and bodyweight plus max weight (35-kilos or more) x 6-8 reps. That's after pressing mind. I could also 'probably' bang out 20 bwt only if there was money on the table. I'm not the world's greatest bencher or presser (367 and 220 max singles) but strongish triceps.

    Aye I was thinking along those lines.

    I weigh 83kg and can rack up 3x15 to 20 BW dips after 3x8 heavy BB bench press. I dont understand the fuss about dips to be honest.

    I'm not a strong bencher, but i banged out 25 dips the other day (showing off outside the gym) at about 92 or 93 kg. I was dipping between roof beams when we were pulling a roof down in an old barn!
    I think I could bang out 20 good reps right now at about 90kg.
    I dipped for about 8 at a bw of 100 with 30 kg around my waist (a couple of years ago), when my bench max was only about 110kg. Horses for courses i suppose.
