Stronger dips and push ups are essential if you want to build more muscle in your upper body.
Scapular control is a big part of all upper body training, but especially when it comes to upper body pushing exercises. Just being able to control your shoulder blades in space is crucial to keeping your shoulders safe as well as building more muscle.
Unfortunately a lot of shoulder control advice is sorrily lacking with ideas like keeping your shoulders tucked or down. These positions are fine, but to truly rule any upper body exercise you need to have full control over your shoulders, no matter what position you find them in.
That’s why this simple move can transform how your pull ups and dips look and feel. It gives you control over many positions not just one.
