A great idea indeed. One difference I can see right off in the form shown on the video is that you would not have to use really heavy poundage to get some good work. The more common, straight up approach may allow for heavier weights, but as the video points out, does and can hurt the elbow. I am going to play with this approach abit.

BTW, have you watched Charles Glass' shoulder training video? It is quite good also, though he doesn't include Arnolds, his approach to front raises and side laterals is very helpful and similar to this video.

Glass knows his stuff. His vids are very good. I personaly do use his form for some lifts. Mostly for Bi's and the H.S. ISO High Row for Saturation sets and Rep Range sets.

His side lats have helped my shoulder pain. He uses the smith machine for a lot of stuff and I do not have one in my garage.

A lot of H.S. ISO also. I thik this is for the quick safe weight changes and still have the free weight effect.

Are arnold presses better than front raises?

  • Front raises are more isolated for the front delts.
  • Arnolds do the whole delt but hit the front more.

I would not say better, I would say different. Rich's response is spot on.
