Since I'm not able to do 1 dip of my bodyweight, I started doing dips the last month. I've been able to slowly move the pin up. I don't know if it's strength gains, weight loss or a combination of both, but it feels good.

I'm doing Bill Star's 5x5 but decided I wanted to be able to get a full set of 5 reps of my bodyweight as a goal. I'm wondering how much this will affect my bench when I move back? Would moving back to bench and waiting till my bench gets stronger and my body weight drops be a better approach to reaching that small goal I've set for myself?
