Triceps dips variation – After a bicipital tendinitis from way back, this has been my go to exercise to substitute bench and parallel bar dips. The assisted pull up machine platform allows me to control deceleration on my biceps from its origin at the shoulder region by not hyperextending the shoulders. The same movement is hard to control with body weight when doing the parallel bars or bench dips. With my back a few inches away from the platform, hips and knees slightly bent, I push down on the platform keeping my elbows on the sagittal plane. I pause at the bottom for some dynamic stabilization before going back up.

Note:
It is difficult to tell bicipital tendinitis and rotator cuff injury apart since they present almost the same symptoms. The biceps tendon passes the first and second rotator cuff muscles on its way to the shoulder so it gets confusing when you self diagnose. The trick is keep the area healthy by adding some ROM exercises(I will the show video soon) on a regular basis because majority of upper body exercises utilizes those muscles.

Terms:
Concentric contraction = accelerate = force production. Eccentric contraction = decelerate = force reduction. Isometric contraction = dynamic stabilization
