I usually do dips with attached weight first thing in my tricep workout. Now I put them in at the end and I think I'm on to something. After I do my standard triceps stuff like push downs, skull crush and others I now end with body weight dips. I think it working better than using  attached weight and putting them in first. The pre fatigue hits the tricep hard.

Shoulder injuries are horrible. The older I get the more I believe that if anything aggravates an injured area you should just drop it and never look back.  I can't bench anymore but I can still bench with dumbbells. Every time I think I can work back into the bench the reason I stopped comes screaming back.

I had a distal bicep rupture. I also think I have problems at the shoulder attachment too. Many years since I had the operation. Maybe 15 years. Coming out of the operation when I could finally lift light I had trouble benching the bar. Just shows how no muscle works in isolation.

I can do them, even weighted dips with 100lbs for reps, but idk, they seems to kinda be bad for me, not directly in the shoulders but, idk, it hurts my body somehow, maybe just body weight is fine but the benefits seem minimal. I stick to what works, flat bench press and flat dumbell press

today I did dips for the first time in a long time, idk if I did 30 or 50 reps(just body weight), I don't remember, but it's written in my log. Trying to get ripped  is affecting my strength a bit, so I'm thinking of ditching the flat dumbell press for dips, what do you think?

My 2 cents on dips and avoiding shoulder injury.

Don't go too low.  90 degree angle forearm to upper arm is low enough.

Don't go crazy heavy.  Go for reps of 8+.
