Weighted dips (DB bench press) have been the cornerstone for my chest workouts so far. While I knew this was theoretically not so good for the shoulders I didn’t buy it. Anyway when I last did them I suddenly felt a very sharp pain high in my armpit. After going light & doing some rehab work on shoulders I believe I am good to go again.
However I was wondering if you’re supposed to retract and depress shoulder blades on dips like you would do on the bench press & push ups?
Also I know that body inclination has an influence on triceps vs pecs recruitment. However, which ones is better from an injury prevention point of view?
Thanks for any insight.
