    What do you mean by front dips compared to normal dips?

    ROM- until your arms are parallel- going below this will expose your shoulder to injury!

    i lean forward when doing dips as i use them mainly for my chest. however, i find keeping my legs behind me (eg touching my ass with my heel) means i can lean forward more.
