Harley08 is off to a bad start

If you've been doing dips for some time and have recently developed to bodyweight-plus workouts, including too much weight too soon makes you an candidate for shoulder impingement. Dips look simple, and some people usually just jump onto the parallel bars and start without training. If you've had a past shoulder injury, avoid dips completely. Instead, do presses and extensions to work the same muscle that dips would work.
