Topic: Shoulder raises with supination
Replies: 6
Views: 4569

YOU can perform them supinated, however, the stress of the weight may cause your elbows to bend during the "up" phase. This will force your biceps to participate in the movement , more-so than your delts.
You best bet, is to address your tennis elbow with forearm work and stretching.

The other advantage to these better chest exercises is excellent development of the anterior delts and the triceps. Not to mention pectoralis minor and the serratus anterior.
Pullovers hit the serratus anterior and pec minor...that is why there were known to expand the rib cage.

The pectorals are one muscle. Those are attachments you've listed. Because it is "fan shaped", different parts of the pectorals can be emphasized, but nothing can "isolate" any one part. I'd go with the follwoing exercises:
Barbell Bench
Decline DBs press
Pullover
Standing flyes on cable

It really depends on how flexible the shoulder girdle and thorasic spine are. If your exh. External rotators of your shoulders are tight, getting the bar any lower is tough. Only hold it where you are comfortable and keep the hand grip in close to "lock up" the rib cage.

NO, use the weaker side's weight. They should not be that far off from each other. They should not be more than 10 pounds difference. The weakness may be due simply to the nervous system not stimulated on that side. My advice is to always start exercises with your weaker side (lunges satrt with left...

I kinda like them and I kinda don't like them. For the untrained shoulder, they put alot of stress on teh capsule and RTC muscles (if they are not conditioned). I like them for pec minor work. When I do perform them, I bring the DB back and only raise it to about a 30 degrees and that emphasizes the...

We use overhead squats as a mobility exercise as part of our dynamic warm-up series. They are great for combining triple extension (squat portion) with full upper body extension in the sagittal plane. With this exercise, we can observe lat tightness, hip tightness, and glute weakness--among others. ...
