I have been having aching shoulders lately from heavy overhead work, from reading this it seems like I could mix in some lighter weight dumbbell bench work but do it as myo reps and still achieve similar effective reps as compared to more traditional heavier barbell work. Give the joints a little break while still working the muscle well.
I'd read this thread. Personally I've moved away from barbell for pretty much everything except pulling exercises like DL and rack pull. They obviously work, I just find them to bother my joints much more.
