there has been lots of responces to the "strive for 65" pullup contest.
are there any dip contests, or charts that will tell you how good you are compared to others. any results for how many someone can do for 1 set, or how many they get in 20 minutes?
others meaning crossfit athletes, not the best guy in the world at doing dips.
is 10 reps good, and twenty better and 30 awsome, or are these numbers a piece of cake to really strong athletes?
i put up a post on a pushup contest , hoping to get some replies on everyones best for 20 or 30 minutes, or i set till failure, but got only 1-2 replies.
just curious as to how many of these two or three basic exercises people can do. pullups pushups and dips.
thanks as always
steve

I did 45 consecutive dips a couple months ago. My numbers have gone down no doubt.

I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to dips. On parallel bars at my peak I could exceed 100 consecutive. I'm down from that now, but working my way back up. 10/20/30 seems low to me, but I'm a gymnast and sets of 30 are common place in the middle of other stuff.

At the Crossfit North site there is a spreadsheet that has four levels of fitness from beginner to elite.
Dips are as follows
Beginner: 3
Intermediate: 1 + 1/3 bodyweight
Advanced: 1 + 3/4 bodyweight
Elite: 1 + bodyweight

That's in referral to their weighted dips. For repetitions i can't quite remember, feel free to check the site out yourself. I remember intermediate is 20 dips... not much else.

Anyway if you learn the Crossfit Warm up correctly you'll be doing 3 x 10 or 3 x 15 dips every day, so you'll improve.

Yeah, I was rather shocked when Rog told me that once.
I thought I was pretty keen when I was in the high 30's several years ago. Then again, I wasn't really around any gymnasts then or big dippers.

Then eventually I started Rog's dip hops across the P's. Bwhahahah. Then we got to do dips in 45 second intervals at the end of workouts. Very ego killah.

We did do a dip test a few months ago, but I don't know what anybody else's where. That could have been 6 or 9 months ago.

Last summer was the last time I tried maxing out on dips and got 30 pretty easily and stopped because I was actually kind of shocked I hit 30 to begin with and last fall I maxed out on the rings with 20. Not sure what I can do now. My previous dip max about 2 years ago was around 15-20.

height - 69"
bw - ~190 lbs

Yeah my dips are full ROM. Bottom with shoulders almost touching the bar full extension at top. I don't know how much credit I should get, like I said, I'm a bit of a freak in that arena. It's why I have a good V-sit. And you guys all trash me on thrusters :-)
