    Regarding the elbows i would say they should stay in line with your shoulders and hands.
    If your head/traps touch parts of the pullup handles i guess that the machine is not designed for tall guys.
    If you have a photo of the machine it would make it easier to make more specific judgements.

    This exercise is going to work your entire arms and shoulders, but people usually do this exercise to work the triceps so ideally keep your arms as close to the body as possible.

    Being tall can be a pain, I still have a decent scar on my leg from a pullup bar that was part of a exercise station. The best option there is to just find an option that is a standalone.

    How to use dip machine properly

    I am 6'2", 154 lbs and I started doing bodyweight, as I am doing lits if running but wanted to be little more athletic upper body. Problem is, I kinda have problem with how to put my hands on the machine... I have seen tutorials where elbows are tucked in, behind body, but when I try lowering, mine go outwards. Also, when I try coming up, I bump my head and traps on pull up handles. I feel like I have wrong position and f*ck up the exercise and my body...

    Please help!!!
Working...
