    arnold does them. he had good results. they are considered the best because arnold invented shoulder work.

    I added them to my shoulder day about a month ago. I do them standing with 60's on my last set. I think they've helped in general. My db presses have gone up to 70x10 from 70x5-6

    Vince Gironda I thought had a specific delt routine for Larry Scott because Scott had relatively narrow shoulders.

    i do them seated. standing you're much more inclined to cheat and give yourself a slight bounce as you lift the weight.

    I do them seated as well and have always done them (as opposed to the standard dumbbell press). From memory, they are supposed to be better than the typical press because you are working more of the heads because of the rotation.

    I start out with barbell military, arnold presses, then exercise y & z.
