Dips with chains?


I'm not sure how many of you guys here train westside but I was wondering has anyone tried doing dips with chain like you would bench press?

    IR: Westside is a training theory adopted by many strength traininers. Lifting with chains involves using a lot of heavy chains which when at the bottom range of the movement are resting on the floor so you are carrying minimal extra poundage. As you extend thru the range of the movement and lift the weight, more and more chain weight is lifted off the floor leading to a progressive increase in weight as you execute the rep.

    Looks like fun actually [:P]

    I retract my previous statement but need more info. What are you trying to get out of the dips? Is this going to be a heavy compound exercise that you go up to low reps on or are you trying to hit the tri's for a supporting set? Or are you going more for bodybuilding dips as a main exercise?

    I'm using low rep dips as an assistance exercise for my bench. Got to the point where I can't comfortably add any more weight to a belt, so I thought about adding chains to get the whole accomodating resistance going. The weakest part of my bench is the lock out so it should help, at least thats what I think. Plus it'll scare the **** out of the biceps brigade at my gym!
