Lateral arm raises with thumbs up

Postby israel » Sun Mar 27, 2011 4:08 pm

I am doing now lateral arm raises with thumbs up and also front raises with thumbs up
cause i thought they felt good when doing them first time - now after second time it dosnt feel as good as before to my shoulders

I only found one forum talk saying its better for your shoulders then with palm facing down- (thumbs to the side )

so did you try this exrcises what do you think about this ?
my blog thats about simple recipes (vegan) :

First off, I think lateral raises are a complete waste of time.

That being said, all the bobdybuilders in my gym do them with palms facing the ground.

Word on these streets is:
all lateral-type shoulder exercises (front/side) should be done with the thumbs up...the rotation of your humerus will allow for more movement within the glenoid fossa of your scapula
aka less grinding and safer, healthier shoulders

Maybe you can try some of the exercises on this video?
