    What about them?

    I believe wide grip upright's are very effective at adding lateral mass. Proper form is key for safety, and effectiveness.

    I believe close grip is more dangerous on the shoulders.

    This is coming from someone with a fncked up shoulder.

    Arched back makes it more like decline though which makes it less of a compound exercise.

    I wonder if external rotator and strong rear delts make it safe to go down far or is it a pec tear prevention rather than shoulder tear issue?

    I will ask my physio next time I see him, he told me not to go down past parallel so I make it a priority for my spotter.

    I heard they were bad too but I cant see how they are physiologically different than DB bench, everything is at pretty close to square angles in both exercises they look to me essentially the same movement:

    I usually do them with a slightly wider than shoulder width grip.

    Exactly.

    It's important to warm-up into the this movement. I've found going heavy straight away, puts strain on my shoulders. Once my shoulders are full of blood, and warmed up, I can attempt to destroy them.
