Default Alternate Exercise

Ok gang figured I'd post this question here wasnt sure where else to go with it. I am starting phase 3 of a new training program today but I'm stuck at teh station and one of the exercises is the parallel bar dip. But we dont have a way to do dips at the station. Any suggestions for an alternate today to target same muscles.

Today will look like this Squat 5 x 5-8 with 120 sec rest
parallel grip chin up 5 x 5-8 with 90 sec rest
parallel bar dip 5x 5-8 with 90 sec rest

How about bench dips?

Or close grip bench for the same amount of reps

I'd prolly go with close grip bench long before bench dips. Bench dips really put your shoulder at a bad angle and not wanting to damage my shoulders have a hard enough time with them lately. Thanks for the suggestions.

How about dips between 2 chairs? You can have your hands more forward...

Also, if you have a foam roller, do your cgbp off of that. The shortened range of motion gives the shoulders a break and allows you to use more weight.
