one arm press with a bb would seem harder than db since it is longer and the difficulty of balancing it with one hand would be greater.
i prefer using db for almost every exrx to hit all stabilizers.
rarely use a bb

anything that works the core in a twisting manner is excellent for paddling/rowing, especially kayaking and canoeing when the core acts like a spring to get power for the stroke.

key exrx for my paddle season is this for my obliques

yeah i do them and love it, this was the exrx i suggested to you in your front bb raise thread. i really like them since they are assisted by the rear delts, which is a weakness for me, so after i have done my rear delt rows i like doing the db raise.
