Have you tried a partial ROM with the laterals? Something like 60 degrees instead of 90? Or even as little as 45 will do the job.
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?
The arm's straight. Well, some bend creeps in on the last couple of reps. If it was bent, you'd surely have to measure the angle at the shoulder, not from body to hand, as you imply.
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?
And not once did you mention the fine truths contained in "The 7 Minute Rotator Cuff Solution".
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?
Hey, that's me!
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".
NHS, have to love it!
I tried playing with the angle of the grip, and it didn't improve the feeling - in fact, turning the little finger side of the hand up made it worse, if anything. Partials were more comfortable, though. However, i think i'm going to abandon my foray into side raises and go back to good old-fashioned no-higher-than-the-nipple upright rows.
You have to give up
