    effective routine

    I am very new to lifting and would like if someone could give me a simple yet effective routine. I have a bench a bar of course and two dumb bells I have about 150 pounds in weights to work with which should be enough wait to get me started! Please help me with a routine I can do with what equipment I have. Thanks!

    Why do you want to replace dips? They're a great exercise for building your chest and triceps.

    Use 2 tall chairs. Or put your feet on a chair and hands on the bench, and put weight in your lap.
