    A Great Overall Shoulder Exercise!

    Hi, For all of you who are not familliar the Cuban Press yet...You need to start incorporating it into your shoulder routine, They're Great for strengthening the rotator's of the shoulders & great for overall shoulder development & they'll also increase your pressing power for the bench & shoulder press. You can see how to do the exercise on YouTube, Bradford Presses are another great Exercise for the rotator's and shoulder strength & development, Give them a try, You'll love the result's, Ed.

    ^Yes, the rotator cuff itself is made up of 4 muscles that combine at/over the shoulder & are like a cuff for the shoulder joint. So basically all the muscles of the rotator cuff are stabilizers since the rc stabilizes the shoulder.

    FYI, It's not a new craze, Those two exercises have been around for a long time and are used by powerlifter's and a lot of bodybuilder's and the reason they've been around a long time is because they work.

    Ehh, you said it was the BEST OVERALL SHOULDER EXCERCISE... I just think it's... not.

    I think Cuban Presses are good for maintaining/strengthening the rotator cuff, but come on, Cuban Presses being better than the overhead press as the BEST SHOULDER EXCERCISE... I think not.

    Even though it is a overhead shoulder press as part of the movement...You get 2 in 1 with this movement because you finish by doing as many presses as you can, I didn't say it was the best mass builder, Of course heavy Barbell & Dumbell presses are the best mass builders, And if you noticed I mentioned Bradford Presses in that post And those are a great mass builder because they take out some of the triceps involvement and put more of the load on the shoulder's. I went ahead and changed the title so I won't get anymore responses like your's.
