When i do weighted dips my warm up is simple. BW for 10, 1 plate for 3, then its singles up to my work weight. However, i never count my frist 2 reps with my working weight. For some reason the first rep is usually about 25% ROM, the second about 50% ROM, the thrid rep is where i hit my stride and get the full ROM(80%). if i try to hit full ROM on the first 2 reps i cant complete a single rep. Once im on my 3rd rep which i count as #1 i can complete 10-12 full reps before failure. Ive experimented with different warm ups to try to correct this but i am stumped for an explaination as to why this occours. Using a mirror to check form i see no problem there. If anyone can help with an explaination i would greatly appreciate it. I suppose theres no real harm in this occourence but i would like to understand it.
