    makeshift dip machine? Or dip replacement

    I'm starting the WBB#1 and would really like to do some weighted dips, however I dont have the stand not space to put one. Is there something like that chinup bar you put in a doorway that also has dip handles, or any sort of space saver like that? Or maybe some trick like using two bar stools (which I'm probably to clumsy for)? If not what should I do to replace the weighted dips? Decline?

    Two bar stools will work just as well if you've got them already. Get your technique happening before you include a weight belt. You'll be fine. Go slow and think about it - like martial arts training! Also could you change your signature please.

    If you use bar stools, or something like that, try putting your hands on the seat rather than on the backs of the chairs. This will make the chairs more stable and less like to fall over.

    Haven't heard of anything that would fit in the doorway though.

    I just googled "home tricep dip bar" and the first thing that came up was one that fits in the doorway. Supposed to work for both chins and dips for about 60 bucks
