Proper warmups before dips??
I currently do bodyweight dips to start my routine, however, I hear some faint popping and cracking noises on my first set. There is no pain or discomfort, just these noises. By the second set they are noise free and all is well. I think my shoulders just need to be warmed up first but since I only do dips with bodyweight that is hard for me to do because I cannot go lighter than I already do.
Anyone know of any good warmup exercsises that would help solve this problem??

If your gym has a gravitron, use that for the warm-ups. If not, put a bench in front of the dip bars and do a couple of "assisted" sets using your legs to take off some of the weight.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us, universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
