dips surface

Is it OK to do dips in between 2 flat surfaces of the same height? What I mean is there's no handles so palms of hands would be flat on surface. Just wondering if this would pose any problems to wrists.

    You may get a little more tension on your wrist joints. However you should get away with it! I would say give it a try and pay attention to how it feels. Any major discomfort or pain. Drop them.

    Yeah I thought it may put strain on the wrists. I tried using the stepper in my gym last night for dips and it's actually pretty darn good, got a few odd looks but I know it's doing more than their cable pushdowns and pec decs! It's a real shame they don't have parallel bars where I go, they've got pretty much everything else!

    Hehe, My hat is off to you fellow.

    You remind me alot of a friend of mine who despite his lack of money and access to a real gym, managed to build a fair physique by being creative. Some of his exercises were chinning from a tree branch, Shoulder pressing the end of his bed with various weighted items slewn on (including a fearful little brother) and dipping between railings in the park.

    Its people with your determination who get where they want to go!

    Best of luck

    Thanks mate!

    It's not a bad gym really, they've got loads of free weights, benches and dumbells upto 80KG, there is a lot of unneccassary machines though and it could do with a powercage instead of just a squat rack cause the catchers on it are pretty low, I'm dreading the day I have to drop the bar backwards onto it! The only advantage is whenever I go in there's rarely anyone using the squat rack so I can hog it for most of my compounds!! :)
