    Anyone ever try 'em?
    You hold a slightly lighter dumbell on the non working side just for balance I would assume.

    Bally's only has one 90lber and one 100lber before it jumps to a pair of 120's.
    I'm already doing the 85's for 18 on the first set but still hesitant to jump to the 120's.

    never tried them. The closest I've come to somethign like that was alternating DB shoulder presses...

    it humbles you really quickly. I usually press the 130's/140's and when doing that I go down to the 90's :hs:

    so, a one arm db press?
    why? not enuff quality time at the gym so you need to spread out the workout some more?

    I'm assuming isolation???

    but from what I do with the DB shoulder presses is that while holding the DB in place and holding balance as you press the other, you're still working the stabalizers in the stationary shoulder...its hard

    Besides the weight available as I posted, I've been experimenting alot with uni lateral training for symmetry anyhow.

    this is an interesting idea timber, are you just using that lighter weight to stablize simply because the gym isn't equipped or do you prefer to simply concentrate on one side/one set at a time rather than an alternating sequence/seesaw technique :dunno:

    gotcha i actually do something similar.
    one db, and you stand in a sumo dl stance. db between legs. grab db and raise up through centerline of body and press. b/c its coming through the centerline, your twisting slightly, so you work stabilizers as well. when done pressing, doesnt hurt to stand up if you want to get a little leg motion in there as well.
    i dont hold onto anything with the other hand though, just hold it out, or as i get tired, onto my leg.
