    Chest Dips Without Machine?

    Is there any way to do chest dips without the whole dip rack and stuff?

    Like with a chair or anything?

    Long story short I don't have access to a rack and need to find a way to do this exercise without one

    Those are tricep dips. He's talking for the chest when you lean slightly forward and move your whole body weight. Like this http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl...s1g3&aql=f&oq=

    Couldn't you turn two table chairs back to back and use them? Solidly built bar stools would probably work better though, would give you a few more inches.
