Several years ago, my sister tore one of her shoulder tendons doing dips. It required surgery to repair it.

I hate them and haven't done any in years.

I tore my ACL stepping off a 6" curb.

I don't add weight to them anymore.

But to be honest my shoulders feel better after doing dips than bench presses with a barbell.

I've been doing a lot of decline DB presses lately, gives good feel.

I can only speak for myself but they certainly feel better for my shoulders than bench press

Its been one of the few constants in my training rotations, in fact I've been doing them for 25 years now with little more than a week between sessions.

If you go too deep with dips you can hurt your shoulders.

So don't.

If you read "how to do dips" they tell you to go as far down as you can.  Bad advices.
