[QUOTE=Knifegill;948001]The regular parallel dips I do are not like Al's, though. Maybe the way I do it is bad for my joints or something, but I tend to go a lot lower. I try to get my shoulders level with my hands, at least. So far so good, but is that wrong?[/QUOTE]
Not everyone can handle going that deep on a parallel dip, but people with strong, flexible shoulders should definitely feel free to extend the range of motion. With this type of instructional video, I usually try to stay beginner friendly, hence the shorter ROM. A first timer could be asking for trouble if they go too low, but like yourself, I often do my dips as low as possible. I suppose I could have addressed this in the clip. Hmm...maybe I'll redo it at some point. :)
Oh, okay! Thanks, Al. You're awesome. Seriously.
