✖️ Shoulder pain when pressing overhead?.. Military Press vs Lateral Raise
👉🏽 Same amount of torque on the shoulder at the bottom of a military press and the top of a lateral raise (arm’s lengthened).
👉🏽 Being a single joint exercise, the lateral raise generally calls for a lighter load because we’ve removed the elbow joint from the equation and therefore the triceps, which account for a lot in pressing movements.
👉🏽 A more shoulder friendly exercise if your vertical press mobility isn’t quite there yet. A good exercise substitute as you work on acquiring that overhead active range for a military press.
👉🏽 TIP: Try the lateral raise from a low pulley, the strength curve has the delts working throughout the entire range, unlike dumbbells!
