    I'm a relative noob to serious lifting.


    short bio - 5'11" on a good day. Former fatty who went from 240 of fat to 180 - . relatively lean, but anemic looking. Started lifting, got addicted. I'm back up about 195-200 from added muscle. For the past 18 monthes or so I've been seriously lifting and IMO made some great gains.


    I was sitting there doing my shoulder workout tonight and I realized that I'd only been shown the arnold press by one buddy, one time and I don't see too many other people at the gym doing it (university rec center) - and there's only half a dozen people out of the dozens I see that I would ever take advice from. :ugh:

    Anyone have pics or explain proper technique on this? I want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. :hsd:

    i do arnie presses about 3x a week...i keep the db's facing forward through the curl and turn them to press up through the shoulder movement. i keep the db facing fwd all the way down in the curl movement too.

    edit: unlike the animation there, i bring the db down to a hanging position at my sides, just like doing a regular bicep curl...then curl up and press overhead.

    hope this helps. :dunno:

    why? it's supposed to be a shoulder workout, why incorporate biceps?
