    hams cramping while doing dips

    This happen to anyone else? I keep my legs tucked when doing dips but I definitely don't sway them or anything. Hurts like a bitch too.

    Maybe you're tucking them too strongly. Let them hang naturally. I've never had that problem.

    I've had it happen when I really try to tense for another rep. Letting them hang will help it (plus keep you more upright if you are going for that).

    I actually lean really far forward because I try and work my chest more than my tris. It may be that I am tensing them up too much

    do dips somewhere where the bars are higher so you do have to bend your legs.
