    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.

    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
