Parallel bar Dips are a powerful exercise for building a muscular chest. They also work your entire upper body including your back, arms and shoulders. Chest dips work the entire upper body, and really give you that hormonal boost you need to grow muscle, tone your chest and lose those man boobs. Chest dips performed with a wide grip and the elbows flared to the sides; target the outer chest better than push-ups, bench presses, or any other exercise for that matter. In doing so, they give you that huge, wide chest that resembles a set of stone slabs set on your chest sideways.
