Man, i worked these into my shoulder routine tonight for "fun". They whooped my white ass. I totally forgot about this exercise. After my standing military, rear/front/lateral raises, i was pretty wasted...but i did em anyway. I could only mange 55lb dumbells haha i was so burnt out. They felt great though.Originally Posted by Built

Glad you liked those.
The arnie/side raise superset was literally how I made my shoulders. And I had NONE when I started.
Whats wrong the smith?! Its safe and how do your muscles know whether its a smith or a free weight? The stimulus is still there.Originally Posted by Max-Mex
Work your way up in poundages to 250-300lbs and then you wont have an issue of small shoulders. Building large shoulders takes time, especially for the genetically average. Be a slave to adding weight bit by bit to the bar. Give it a few years and you'll transform your whole look.
The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...
carefull with arnolds. you need to go light because a lot of people get injured going heavy.
You do really need to watch your form an Arnies, no doubt about it.
right, because its a joint and different heads of the muscle move the arm in a different direction. the more you isolate a head, the more your arm moves in a different direction. say you are doing lateral raises, standing straight up with your arms moving on a plane at 80 degrees. you would be using the lateral head more than you are using the anterior head. if your arms move in an 80 degree angle while bent over, its more like a 45 degree angle and your anteriors are getting worked alot more than the laterals.Originally Posted by smalls
