RTO dips

Recommended Posts

Petri Widsten

This is from my third session of RTO dips; could I please have a form check? I'm doing 5x 3-4 reps.

Once I have these down (10 reps with good form), how do you suggest I progress this exercise? Add weight, dip lower, turn rings out 90 degrees....?

Do you think these are good training for building up to bent arm tuck planche dips/pushups? I'm considering alternating between them, PPPUs and 45 degree dips.

I'm sorry to say again that there is no dip or pushup variation that gives you the strength for the planche. strength is specific and especially isometric strength is also more specific.  in order to improve planche you MUST train planche.

@Alessandro Mainente I was referring to bent arm elements like tuck planche pushups, not straight arm ones like planche. Is the form ok? Thanks

The answer is the same, straight arm improves straight arms. Referring to your dips, is imperative to lockout always your elbows, in your second rep for example the lockout is not presented.
