Hmm, that's a good question. I don't really know the technical/scientific answer for it. The reason I do it is because my trainer told me to (he is in insane shape, better than the guys from 300) and you find these type of workouts in magazines dedicated to strength/working out.

Plus you could ask the same question about the Back/Bicep day. You're already working out the minor muscle on that day, so I see it as, why not work it out more?

Yes, dips are awesome....that is weighted dips. They work wonders. OP get yourself a weighted dip belt, unless the gym you go to has one for you to use.
