Side Raise Perfection

By February 9, 2017February 11th, 2024No Comments

This is the long lever version for those who have no shoulder issues. The key to maintaining shoulder integrity is to stay under the 85 degrees of abduction. This means as you raise your arm (loaded) to the side…you only go as high as water can still run down your arm to the direction of your hand. Get it? Water can not rest on the arm…it has no choice but to run/ flow down your arm. This keeps it away from going to high and pinch the tendon that rests in between the acromion process, and the clavicle. Also I have done studies on the hand position. As you hold the cable or dumbbell…load is load…have your pinky lower than your thumb. This will open the space in the shoulder joint. I give you the facts!!! Sad to see those youtube videos that are all based on looks, and a feeling. Sorry if it dont look cool to do it the way…Hate me now love me later. 🙂
