Dips on Madcow 5x5

On the final session of the week he mentions weighted dips, which I presume is in the routine to target the chest rather than the tri’s. I have a slight problem in that my gym has an all in one pullup/dips station where the grip is fairly narrow. I’ve read on here several times that you need a wide grip to target the chest. Can I emphasise the chest enough by leaning forwards, or should I look to substitute the exercise for something else (possibly incline db press or maybe flies?)

Cheers guys

    Yeah i find if you lean forward and keep your feet infront of you so your making a sort of ) shape . That should hit your chest more..
