Hey this is probably a good question for Roger or Steve....

I jacked my shoulder and want to avoid the rings for a bit and have a nice corner counter to do dips on. My question is what is the ideal hand placement and are there any other form tips you guys have to make it easy on the shoulder?

Thanks

Hey, been in another state for a while.

How messed up is the shoulder? Depending on how bad you probably don't want to be doing dips at all and just light PT/rotator work and icing.

Otherwise pretty much just figure out any type of dips that don't hurt. To do that just place your hands on the counter in different positions and use your feet to take off some of the weight and lower yourself down into the positions. If it hurts, switch up your hands and see if you can hit any positions where it doesn't hurt. Then you got your dips you can do. You probably didn't need Roger's or my advice for that though. Whatever doesn't hurt is usually the best for any situation. :-)

I tore the labrum and rotator cuff in the other shoulder before doing bjj and it feels like that.

This may correlate with the 45 degree push up issue from the other thread. I have also noticed I can do push ups forever but dips are tough suggesting a triceps/chest imbalance so maybe the 45 degree "triceps push ups" will really be a good thing for me. Is the 45 degree arm orientation consistent with HSPU's and dips as well?

Thanks for your help Steve.

Like Roger said in another thread, dips and HSPUs are arms tucked by the side.
