    Default Collarbone strain-ROP&weighted dips

    Hello, jonnyd:

    To relieve that soreness in the collarbone area, affix your dipping belt to your waist. Dips can be performed more efficaciously in this manner.

    Regards,
    Peter

    Default Collarbone strain-ROP&weighted dips

    Thanks Peter- I'm confused on what you mean by affix the dipping belt to my waist? My belt has a chain that I run through a kettlebell. Should I tighten the belt somehow?

    Default Collarbone strain-ROP&weighted dips

    Of course I don't speak for Peter, but maybe he thought you were hanging the weight over your shoulders somehow? I recently strained my rotator cuff a little by using too great a range of motion on my weighted dips. My pain was right where the collar bone meets the shoulder. You may want to get this checked out by a doc, and in the mean time ease up on the weighted dips and bench. The ROP is already very heavy on the pressing, and you increase the chance of injury/burnout if you overdo it. Again, not an expert here, but you want to see a doctor any time you have persistent pain from exercise.
