dip shrugs?


Dip Shrugs

Only the best athletes seem to possess good scapular (shoulder blade) control. With that in mind, this exercise will promote PAP achievement, upper lat development, pec development, and even trap development. This specific exercise, however, is implemented to depress the shoulders, primarily, with conditional cases to better regulate the integration between these involved muscle groups.

The execution involves performing an inverse shrug on a parallel dip bar device. The distance between the dip handles should be proximal 32”. Note: your shoulder blades should be back and held static at this relative horizontal position as the vertical movement is carried out. Maintain semi-stiff arms throughout- this is not a full-dip.

Any one tried these "dip shrugs"? I assume its just used with no weight and not to failure, similar to rotator cuff exercise (in fact, it may involve some of the rotator cuff muscles)
