Shoulder Popping During Dips

I’m following Chad Waterbury’s ABBH program and I just did the Dips and Chin-ups day.

Doing the dips, everytime I would lower my left shoulder would pop as if it were dislocating, but I could still push myself back up. I used an assistance machine set really high to see if it still occured and it didn’t. I stopped after it became really bad and am wondering if anyone has experienced this before and what the cause is. Also, what can I do to fix this?

Thanks

Sounds like your strings are loose. Find some physical therapy exercises for shoulders and work on those.

If it doesn’t hurt in any way it probably isn’t dangerous. This is what my doctor told me. If I can remember right it’s the long tendon of bicep which pops under the acronomion or something. But, if you have any doubts or pain, go see therapist or doctor.
