For some reason I have a heck of a time training these things. Im doing WBB1 and they seem to be lagging a tad.
Also on that note, for DB presses, should I go till my elbow is 90degrees or as low as possible???
shrugs with a trap bar....will def. boost those shoulders....but don't roll when the muscles contract....will lead to injury later on...
Yeah I read alot about that, some guy at the gym told me it was ok to do that...I just looked at him and shook my head.
And on that note I wasnt talking about shrugs
I take dumbell presses, for bench, or whatever else I'm doing, to the same point I would take a barbell.
Arnie presses rule my world.
Try them, supersetted with lateral raises.
REALLY hits the laterals when they're pre-exhausted from the Arnies.

I'll never even bother with militaries again.
I've been doing arnold press, but it feels so awkward, and I have trouble getting the dumbells into position. I can shoulder press more than my biceps can accomodate.
Stay with it.
It's worth getting the movement down.
i will, i will...
*goes off to sulk*
I just switched to arnies from DB press.. so far so good.
I thought lateral raises only hit lateral delts?Originally Posted by Built
hey man is your back still hurting? I guess may be arnold press is good, considering that you use less weight and more ROM.Originally Posted by twm5993
You're right. I meant laterals, but for some stupid reason typed anterior.Originally Posted by METALASIAN
It is a little tweaked but its much better since I switched to arnies. I think somehow getting the weight into position for DB OH press was somehow causing me to shift my back in ways it shouldn't. When I get setup for arnies, I can just push the weight up with my knees into the top of a bicep curl position and its good times from there.Originally Posted by DNL
But yes, I am definitely not doing DB presses anymore. Arnorld presses have a much better stretch/ROM to me and I feel more worked after I'm done.

Arnold Press's are nice.. but I"m thinking of trying a push/pull routine, so Arnold Press's and Lat Raises wouldn't be on the same day. Would this still be effective? (I know that defeats the purpose of supersetting)
I tried Arnolds a couple weeks ago and I have to say I was impressed, I think I need to move the weight up though.
