I agree. This is a body building workout, not a primal workout. It was interesting to see, so thanks for posting it. But if we go back to my original post, I find it hard to do more than 2 lifts per session and have some visceral fat loss and general health goals, not body building goals.
So that will kill me.
Fair 'nuff. Good luck!
You are wrong. The only 2 muscle groups that matter are as follows:

Ring dips vs Regular dips is equivalent to Squatting and Squatting in a smith machine. Way more muscle stabilization and you will notice your abs activated as well. Just my personal experience.
Calves? You're clearly a noob brah, it's chest and bi's. I do a 6 day split:

Why do calves, don't your wear pants brah? No one can see your legs! Duh.
As rip says build the strength base first with regular dips. Once you have that ring dips won't tax your shoulders. Now muscle ups on the other hand...
By that logic, should we all squat on Bosu balls? I mean there's way more stabilization required.

Someone with adequate strength and form can ring dip with extremely low chance of injury. The range of motion is controlled and very simple. Of course freak accidents happen, you can tear an acl walking down stairs for gods sake. Ring dips won't be for everyone. I've just found they work great for me.
The "adequate strength and form" part is a big if. The chance of shoulder injury is still higher vs regular dips and the benefit isn't great enough to offset it, in my opinion. Plus I imagine you can get stronger with regular dips because it's easier to add weight as your progress.
