Ultimate Body Press Dip Stand Review

The Ultimate Body Press Dip Stand features a space saving design that’s ideal for a range of upper body exercises, including dips and bodyweight pull ups.

Design features

The lightweight frame can be adjusted to 2 different width settings

While standard pull up and dip stations certainly have their benefits, their height will often need to be over 7ft to allow a full range of motion on the pull ups.

If you are limited with the amount of space available in your own home gym then this will often lead to searching for a more space efficient alternative.

This is where the Ultimate Body Press Dip Stand comes in, with its super strong frame supporting weight up to an impressive 300 lb, and a height that makes it suitable for users up to 6′ 5″.

This compact and lightweight design also makes it much easier to move if needed, resulting in a dip stand that is easy to store away, but still take just seconds to be setup again when it’s time for your next workout.

Another nice feature that won’t be available on most dip stations is the adjustable width. You can choose to set the distance between the handles to either 21″ or 22.5″ apart, helping to fully develop your chest, tricep, and shoulder muscles.

Because this is such a lightweight frame there would usually be a risk of sliding on smoother floors when in use. This is why the Ultimate Body Press Dip Stand also includes rubber levelling feet near each corner to provide extra grip and stability.

Exercise options

Ultimate Body Press Dip Stand

Despite its simple and space efficient design, there are actually a wide range of calisthenics exercises (use only your bodyweight as resistance) that can be performed using the Ultimate Body Press Dip Stand.

These include:

  • Chest dips
  • Tricep dips
  • Bodyweight rows
  • Knee raises

Although the frame height isn’t as high as the dip bars you find on many pull up towers, you can still take full advantage of the high weight limit with the use of a weighted vest.

As your strength increases, you may find that it takes more reps and sets than you would like to train a particular muscle group.

If this is the case then a weighted vest can be an excellent alternative to the dip belt that you might have used on a pull up tower. Vests can weigh up to 60 lb+ and can even be adjustable, allowing you to add or remove 5 lb blocks from the vest at a time.

Additional attachments

The push up rings take an already effective exercise and raise it to a much higher difficulty for a more challenging workout

If the resistance created by a weighted vest still wasn’t enough to create a challenging workout, then you can also buy a weighted dip attachment.

Weighted dip belt – If you have ever used weightlifting bands in the past for squats, deadlifts, or bench press, the change in resistance using the dip belt will feel very familiar.

A series of coloured bands can be clipped onto a belt wrapped around your waist, with the quantity used varying between 1 and 3 bands depending on the resistance required (creates up to 80 lbs).

Due to the nature of resistance bands, you will most likely find the range of motion much more difficult towards the top of the rep.

Push up rings – With many pull up towers now providing handles on the base for push ups, the ring attachment is a useful addition that allows you to add another effective upper body exercise to your workouts.

Review Overview

Overall Rating

4 / 5

One of the great benefits of the Ultimate Body Press Dip Stand is that the exercises you can perform for working your upper body are all classed as 'compound' rather than isolation.

While many home gym machines are designed to isolate a wider range of muscles, compound movements such as dips and push ups have been shown to recruit more muscles in the one exercise, which results in an effective workout.

Whether you are buying this as your first piece of fitness equipment or looking to add to your growing home gym, for the compact size and lightweight design, this makes an excellent alternative to the larger and more expensive traditional dip and pull up towers.
