    Question Reverse Overhead Lateral Raises

    Anybody do these?
    I read about them in Arnold's Encyclepedia. It appears to work the medial and posterior delts very similar to lateral raises but without any chance of cheating.

    Sounds like it would be hard on the r/c. r/c injury = no good.

    If you are talking about the ones that are "popular with British Bodybuilders"-I think it's front delts and traps.

    Yeah, I do those. They are really tailored for hitting the anterior(front) delts with some medial delt involvement. I do mine with a hammer grip to get the medial delts more involved.

    I do them occasionally for something different, or at the end of a shoulder workout if I want to give them some extra punishment. But for oddball side delt exercises, my favourite are W presses. No potential RC problems with that one!

    Well, screw that then. I could swear they were stated as a medial, posterior exercise with secondary emphasis placed upon traps. All three of those in which I need work.
    As for the anterior head, hell every form of dumbbell press hits that.

    I just thought the feel of them would be better than that of a standing side or rear lateral.

    Thanks DD/Widebody!

    O.K., call me stupid. But, would it resemble a standing bench press?

    Not sure I understand the question, but to give a better description think about the path your hands follow when pressing a barbell overhead. Your hands are at a fixed width that the barbell keeps them at. You do this with the dumbells in a W press, so you must focus on not only pressing up, but also pressing out to keep your hands from coming closer together when your press overhead. Your hands should be closer together at the bottom of the motion than they are when you have pressed the dumbells overhead. Does that make sense?
    These are much harder than traditional dumbell presses, as the leverage of the movement and constant tension on the delts decreases the amount of weight you should effectively be able to handle.

    Ah!
    I thought when you said outward, you meant straight ahead(in FRONT of your body). Kinda like a standing bench press. I was thinking that would have to be hell on the rotator cuffs and elbows.
    Now I see what you meant. A standard db press. But, as you press upwards the dumbbells angle out and up. So, they are further apart at the top, then at the bottom of the movement.
    Cool!
    Next week!!!!
