Noteworthy that he advocates ball presses and limited ROM dips. Sounds familiar. -3X

Could you explain please. I'm assuming you're saying you say these same things.

@Kansas___Boyyyyy stability ball presses are an awesome addition to any strength routine. See here: http://forum.simplyshredded.com/topic/13241/swiss-ball-db-presses/

Dips beyond 90 degrees of elbow flexion are disastrous for the shoulder. Shoulder extension isn't meant to go that far- especially with added weight. From elitefts's article, "Dips done right":

Descend to the point of a stretch, not pain. Ideally, you should feel a slight stretch of both heads of the pectoralis major as well as the anterior deltoid. You should not sink below where the elbow achieves 90 degrees of flexion or where the back of your arm is parallel with the ceiling.

Interestingly, SOMEONE on this board once posted:

"I have a hard time believing anyone can actually do dips for an extended amount of time and becoming really strong in them without breaking their shoulders or atleast wearing them out eventually, opinions?"

Hmmmm... -3X

Good stuff. Elitefts is however pretty good at ripping off everyone else and calling it their own so not gonna give them too much cred.

What's the difference if it's "ripped off" or not? The information is accurate! -3X
