Multi Exercise Poundages

Hi everyone,

i was wondering what medium-good-very good poundages for negative chins & dips for about 5-8 reps a 10 seconds on the Nautilus Multi Exercise Machine are.

Has anyone witnessed someone using the whole stack for neg. chins or dips?

Last week I did NEGATIVE chins with 80 pounds and NEGATIVE dips with 120. I made sure they were slow and controlled. I also made sure the carriage was down so I could easily touch the ground if I had a problem. About a year ago I strained my shoulder slightly becuase I went too deep on the dip.

But the whole stack? That would be impressive if someone did it slowly.

The most resistance I've seen anyone use on the Multi-Exercise machine for NO chins was 140 pounds. Dave Hudlow used that much for several workouts . . . 140 pounds for 5 or 6 good reps.

I've seen Casey Viator use the entire weight stack, 250 pounds, for NO dips. And believe it or not, one day, as a demonstration, he said . . . "to hell with negatives," and did 10 normal, positive/negative reps with 250 pounds. They weren't easy, but he could have done more. I suppose on that day, he could have done 300-plus pounds negatively, for 6-7 good reps.

I did 6 no reps,10 seconds each, with 140 on chins and 170 on dips. At age 50 I think those weights are good. 25 years ago I did 200 on chins and 250 on dips. Keep working on them.

Hello Dr. Darden,

Since he used to use 250 for NO dips and he could actually do them for normal reps - does this mean he would just workout under his potential?

Ron,

Concerning Casey's training . . . only Arthur Jones could get a consistent 100% effort out of Viator when he trained him. No one else could get that all-out effort from him. Jones trained Viator consistently during 1970-71, and even then, it was something like only 41 times.

Charlie,

Those are some impressive numbers. Have you tried normal dips and chins to see what those negative only numbers translate to?

Also, are you doing any new studies now with the football players like you did for your first study?

David,
I do a 1 minute chin and dip every 6 to 8 weeks to check strength gains. The last time I checked it I used 40 on chins and 50 on dips, that is an altime high for me.
I will be doing some more studies but not on high school athletes, I retired from teaching. I may use college athletes this fall.
God Bless,
Charlie
