    Question about pull ups/ chin ups and dips.

    I now these are great exercises to do but I can't seem to do more then 3 reps after I workout my muscles with weights..For example after doing a couple of sets of deadlifts and barbell rows and then try to do a pull up i cant do more then 3...However if I do them first i can easily do 3 sets of 8..Same goes for dips, if i bench press and do tricept exercises before doing dips it makes it hard to do them..

    So my question is it just as beneficial to them before lifting weights or is it better as the last exercise?

    You can do them first if you feel like they're kicking your ass after doing weights.

    It depends on whether you use your lats during your DLs. For example, I believe Rippetoe condones lat engagement (like in an Oly pull), but there are other methods. If you use the form where you use lat engagement then Id just keep them after the DLs and before the rows. You can also try kipping pullups

    I do mine last... but I recently started doing chins before bent over rows and I seem to be able to get more weight on the chins, while the rows have stayed the same. Good times.

    yeah i know....it doesn't seem to effect my weights (maybe the last rep or my las set)...i just thought chips and dips were kind like a an after burnout for your muscles, didn't look at them like a workout

    Pull-ups and dips are great exercises. You can do both as weighted exercises too. I prefer chin-ups to barbell rows, but still do both exercises. Chin-ups come first though.

    Have you tried using wrists straps for your chinups?
    It could well be that your grip has become fatigued and that puts extra stress/strain on your muscles while you are doing your chinups toward the end.

    I find grip fatigue to be very subtle and not something that is easy to detect. Toss on some straps
