Have you tried a partial ROM with the laterals?You and your partials!
Something like 60 degrees instead of 90?
Or even as little as 45 will do the job.
Was checking out YouTube recently and found an Italian language clip
of the 1980 Mr. Olympia. It's a version of "The Comeback" with the
audio translated by an off-screen Italian speaker. Anyway there's a
number of Tom Platz segments and one has him doing single arm dumbbell
laterals at what couldn't be more than 25 degrees, imo.
Ha! Found it.
Well, I'm almost certain it's in there somewhere.
Duh. I bet it was in my recently viewed folder. Now they're ALL in
No, i haven't tried it; i bring the weights up to eye-level,
so it's maybe 100, 110 degrees.
Saaaaay, I'm just curious if your arm is straight. Is it 100, 110
degrees if your arm is bent at 45 degrees? I mean if your arms is
straight then yes, but if your arm is bent slightly, well, your hand
and the dumbbell therein could be at 110 degrees while your deltoid is
"lagging behind" at 90 degrees?
Uh, this question is from Mr. Sloppy-Form-Narrow-Shoulders, calling in
from Paducah, Kentucky. Thank you, caller!
(Okay, okay, Carlisle, Pennsylvania.)
-=Googles some more=-
Well, I'll be darned.
What discomfort there is is towards the top of the lift,
so i'll give partials a go - cheers for the idea.
Maybe you'll visit Kentucky some day. Where's my thank you?
You do realize that in a few years these same fine folks who only learn by doing and re-doing until injured will be posting questions about their shoulder pain brought on by incorrect shoulder exercise, e.g., anything above shoulder level?
I watch them in the gym, slinging the weight up without a clue to form or ROM limitations of the affected joints and think "no wonder my insurance premiums are continuing to climb".
