Default Weighted dips

Any thoughts on weighted dips? Like 'em, hate 'em, found them useful, hurts your shoulder? Who trains them regularly?

Like em, especially on the rings. I used to train them a good bit. I'll work them back in this summer.

I liked weighted dips and ring dips, the ring dips a little bit better although they are a bit more challenging, this is because sometimes depending on the dip apparatus it just makes it uncomforatble. With the rings it's a lot more adjustable for your body.

I'm personally working on harder dip variations from Sommer's book, before I bother going to weighted dips.

Yup you can do all with leverage just as much as stacking on more weight.
