    Hey Zach! I have a little question for you:

    During my warm-up i do band pulls apart, face pulls and shoulder dislocations, and my training is usually very balanced in a pull/push way.

    But, if i want to do some extra work with some dips, or to do some weight push training before my workouts, what exercise should i combine it with to keep my shoulders healthy?? Band pulls apart, face pulls, light inverted rows?

    I am asking this to you because i used to have my shoulders injured, and now that i balanced my training i feel much better.

    Thank you for your help Zach, i love your passion!
