Thanks, this approach has gotten me to 10 reps with a weighted vest of 48kg for parallel dips at a bodyweight of 77kg. It's worth reading the work of Stuart McRobert (like his book, Brawn published in '91) for a background to the abbreviated style of training. It's basically how people trained before the proliferation of steroids.

Should mention, I use a Kensui Fitness weighted vest, fantastic piece of kit that you can load plates on to. I have no affiliation with the company, it's just a really good product.

Thanks Ross, had a look, very interesting - which one did you go for?

I was an early adopter so the one I have is a bit of a hybrid but it's effectively the Max
