how are Front Raises and Upright Rows???
Why can't you do shoulder press or military? I don't think anything works my delts like those presses.
im recovering from a Herniated disk in my neck...my PT told me to do DB shoulder press with my elbows in/(or like pointing forward). And I forgot to ask him this question so I thought id just make a post.Originally Posted by ABDomega

I like lateral raises, upright rows, and a version of the front raise where you put the bench on a incline position, like you would for doing incline bench press. You need a barbell, I perfer the cap barbells that weigh 20lbs-easier to work with. Lay down like you would for a bench press and hold the barbell with X amount of weight with arms extended(elbows slightly bent) above your lower abs, and raise upright until it's over your head, then back down but don't rest it on your stomach, keep constant tension on the front delts.
My brother and I were brutal. I once chased him around the house with a spoon that I put on the burner. I burned that little pricks leg. -sharkall2003
Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke. he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today - Rock
is that pretty much the same as db lat raises? That sounds pretty good.Originally Posted by HahnB
Hahnb, I do those too. I like that much better than db front raises.
Don't do upright rows. They are a cause of shoulder injury when done incorrectly. Do front DB raises instead to avoid shoulder AC joint injuries.

There would be no reason to substitute front raises for upright rows. The anterior delt has minimal involvement in an upright row relative to the medial and posterior while it is used almost exclusively in the front raise.Originally Posted by Chris Tucker
A viable substitution would be a face pull.

Read what I said. I didn't advocate the upright row, I said your exercise subsitution was inaccurate.Originally Posted by Chris Tucker
He asked about front raises and upright rows. I informed him that the only valid selection. given the choices, is the front raise movements.Originally Posted by Borris
They are a cause of shoulder injury when done CORRECTLY, which is why they are one of the worst exercises possible, in my book.Originally Posted by Chris Tucker
However, Borris is correct in that the anterior delt is not the primary mover for upright rows. Lateral delt raises or a face pull are the correct substitutions.Originally Posted by Chris Tucker
