    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.
