The following information may help.

Traditional tricep dips may place undo stress on your shoulder (rotator cuff, subacromial space, etc.) due to lack of form.

Some common mistakes include:

– Rounding shoulders forward.
– Shrugging shoulders towards ears.
– Descending to close to the ground.

So try this modification with higher reps to lighter weight to promote improved posture and enhance the support of the rotator cuff muscles.

For my fellow nerds, this modification involves the following:
– Scapular retraction and depression: contracting your rhomboids, lower trapezius, and latissimus dorsi.
– Shoulder external rotation: infrapinatus, teres minor, and posterior deltoids.  This is easier to perform on a @lebertfitness equalizer.
… this will open the subacromial space, reduce tension in the anterior-superior capsule, upper trapezius, levator scapulae, and subscapularis.

Still in pain?
– Let your coach/trainer know that this is causing pain.
Schedule an appointment with us to confirm the underlying diagnosis.

Make it a great day!
