    Can you do both of them very easily?

    i would like to do them at the start as well. however, if i do it decreases my strength for the other exercises. i havent been doing them every workout as i wasnt sure if it was ok or not.

    i can do dips a lot easier than i can do chinups... but i am decent at chinups... and yeah sometimes after a workout i am BEAT and jus say screw it to dips and chinups lol

    wait... doing dips and chins tears muscle... muscle needs recovery..therefore how can he preform workouts that work the same muscles during every workout. Give them a break.
    In my opinion, you should do your dips during chest, or arm days, and keep chins for back days. Whether or not you should do them during the start or end is totally up to you.. I usually do my chins in the beginning, to warm up my back and work the lats. It does tire up out though that's for sure.

Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge
