General And Specifics

  • combined exercise to train the deltoids and the rotator cuffs at the same time
  • a great switchover from shoulder to biceps workout

Starting Position

  • grasp two dumbbells with over hand grip
  • brace the biceps and bend the elbows to 90 degrees
  • posture is upright
  • the feet are hip width apart

Correct Execution

  • raise the arms to the sides, until the upper arms are parallel to the floor
  • your shoulders and elbows are in a line
  • rotate the forearms upwards (as in L-Fly With Dumbbells), until the forearms are vertical to the floor
  • the upper arms remain parallel to the ground
  • afterwards, invert the motion
  • guide the forearms to the parallel position again, lower the upper arms and come back to the starting position
  • do several reps
