    Yes, for longevity purposes I'm highly in favor of permanently ditching the BB Bench Press. Though if you're going to use it, the safest time is near the end of your chest workout, because at that point you'll be fatigued and will need less weight to stimulate your pecs.

    Best,

    You might be best moving to some machines that are less taxing on your shoulder. I have shoulder issues as well and like the machine flys. I get a real god burn from it and have made gains lately. I started out with around 50 lbs in January and was doing 160 a few days ago. You can also limit the range of motion easily.

    Any chest workout you do will involve the front delts. People simply injure themselves through carelessness and going too heavy for their level. With dumbbells you can injure your shoulder or bicep by heaving them up very sloppily and letting them bounce around while trying to get them into position. Don't let this scare you, always keep positive control of the weight and don't jump ahead of yourself. You're more prone to injury going on a jog than you are in the gym with weights you can handle and control. Stay within your weight range and smooth easy reps. It should almost look like you're a robot. Keep it from being jerky through the range of motion and always condition your stabilizing muscles on the side. For bench, your tri's, bi's and shoulders play a major role along with your pecs. Again stick with good form and light weight for high reps to keep everything in check. When going down with the bar/dumbbell through the motion it should take a count from 2-3 seconds before you touch your chest and push back up. Get the motion down first then go up in weight as needed.

    The bicep tendon ties into the shoulder labrum. When benching the bicep will tense and can lead to labrum tears. I tore my labrum doing flat bb bench.
