    Default Arnold Press

    Regarding Arnold press: When perfomring them, I keep my pinkies higher than the thumbs and moving the weight in an arc rather than lockign the elbows out. I feel that lockign the elbows reduces tension on the medial delt. Also, when coming back down I "pull" the elbows down and not just let the weight down. Moreso, at the bottom position I pre-tense the delts which maximizes the contraction. The same approach is used with side presses.

    I had always avoided Arnold Presses because of the twisting motion. It always appeared to me that there may be some rotator damage.

    Forget the ah-nold press. It's garbage. Use the bent press, push press, dumbell shoulder press or military press. On this forum, you will hear from strength not bodybuilders.

    Com. Mark, it's cool, I have thick skin ;] I stick to the opinion that the AP is good if you try to move some poundage and keep your reps low..
