Your numbers are better than mine...for now, but I would think doing your regular dip routine with weight will jump start some progress. A focus on the mind to muscle connection, full ROM, and perfect form always did wonders for my muscle growth and strength.

Maybe do the dips at the start of your workout sometimes to mix it up.

Im doing pullups first right now since my dips are so much stronger.

*it may seem to some that I have a lot of opinions for a beginner at calisthenics, but im my younger years I have had a lot training experience.

That said the above is just my opinion and I really dont want to be taken for someone with a know it all attitude. I am open to learn everyday....and I like to talk....hehe

best of training to you.

Age beats experience, hands down, every time Wink

Weirdly, my dips are literally twice as good as my pull-ups - probably more (3 x 10kg weighted pulls vs. 9 x 10kg weighted dips?!).

Anyhow, one other suggestion is adding some holds - so a 5s hold at the bottom and a 5s hold at the top, and do sets of 10.

You could also add weight and do super-slow negatives (like 10 or even 20s).

Finally, pyramid sets could help - 1,2,3etc. to 10, then back down again. You are effectively doing a lot more dips that way.

Also, I don't know whether you max out, but you shouldn't really do that every time you train as it can over-stress the CNS and muscles and inhibit progress.
