When using dumbells for shrugs.. is it ok to rotate the shoulder as opposed to just shrugging up and down? I remember reading somewhere that this could damage the rotator cuffs..
Straight up and down, no shoulder rotation.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
"You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial

I has a facebook.
Thanks for the clarification.. nice avatar and name by the way.
I was always under the impression the use of DB's for shrugs was so you could take advantage of a increased range of motion.
I thought the same thing, but eventually most people will have to switch to BB anyway, since it'd be hard to grip dumbbells that weigh in the hundreds.Originally Posted by Jabberwocky
