        Push down -- the literal, rather than metaphorical meaning of "depress".

    i have a theory that the people that snap their shoulders on dips are people that have previously trained bench press which has substantially reduced their shoulder range of motion, so they end up snapping their shit when they actually push their range of motion on a dip

      dips actually healed my shoulder when I did them right. Both my shoulders were fugged since middleschool because of sports.

      Yes, they're just people who go below parallel, which you should not do on a dip.

      i see soooo many fucking people do dips with the worst possible form
      i cringe so hard every time
      it's unbelievable how so many people just have no idea how to do certain movements properly
      like it isn't even hard to figure out the best/safest way to do most exercises on your own either
      especially dips

      dips give you a way better stretch in your pec. Bench is absolute peasantry compared to dips it's unparalleled.

      Why are rings better? I feel uncomfortable doing them on a bar and was wondering whether rings would help.

        same reason why dumbbell pressing is much better for your shoulders. your shoulder are allowed to move during the movement.

        Think about a barbell bench, its a a single, fixated object that you're pressing, as opposed to rings, or dumbells, where your shoulders and hands can rotate throughout the movement.

        This doesnt mean you should completely neglect barbell benching, because it really it amazing for strength, but also consider the benefits of using dumbells and rings.

        For example, i remember when i injured my rotator cuff and literally would have searing pain when i benched with a barbell. Doing ring dips surprisingly to me at the time, did not cause any pain at all, therefore allowing me to train my chest while despite having a shoulder injury.

            I weighed 240 and did paused reps with 6 pl8s and eventually hurt my posterior labrum

            When you go heavy for a long time they chew you up. Haven't done a dip in years and don't really miss them tbh

        I've been lifting for a couple of years now
        I think it may have something to do with the dip bars at my gym being really far apart?
        When I try to dip on those it feels like my ribcage is being pulled apart
        I just tried it at home and didn't have that problem. It's fucking weird

          all about the bar.
          i can do dips at extremely heavy weights all day on a parallel bar.
          Those fucking weird ass V bars you hook up to power cages? hurt my elbow and shoulder ever time.

          Insertion is a real thing and you can really fuck up your body doing a lift variation that you at a genetic level are not meant to do.

    I found the solution for me is to tilt your body further forward, and look down. I feel zero pain when I do that.

      Imagine having injuries on a natural exercise that is based on moving up your body with your arms, you are just doing it wrong weak gay

      >natural exercise
      moron when will you ever need to do dips? The closest movements are pushing yourself off a floor or climbing, but neither come close.

    You either can do them or you don't
    Just depends on the structure of your shoulders
    Only way I can do them with decent ROM is with tons of forward lean and you might as well do dumbbell bench at that point
