Hany Rambod's 70 Seconds on FST-7 Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Today Hany Rambod the "Pro Creator" and coach to 15 Olympia titles and counting as of 2015 is featuring approximately 70 seconds on FST-7 tips for Dumbbell Shoulder Press.
Hany encourages using full range of motion, all the way up and all the way down, without locking out the elbows. When the elbows lock the tension is taken away from the muscle and placed on the elbow joint. With the tension on the elbow joint there is higher risk for injury and the muscle fibers in the shoulder and ancillary muscles supporting the movement are not fully engaged.
Variation is key to working the full deltoid. Hany will have clients switch from a regular grip with the palms forward to what he calls "power grip" where palms are in a neutral position facing each other. Be sure to keep the elbows directly under the wrists with the forearm perpendicular to the floor.
Use this as a foundation exercise. It should be either the 1st or 2nd movement in your routine. 3-4 sets x 8-10 reps adding 5 partial reps after completing the reps of your final set to fully fatigue the muscle fibers and engorge the muscle with blood. Be sure to sip on either Cell KEM or a combination of Cell KEM and GlycoJect for maximum muscle volume.
