I was wondering because it's quite well known you're supposed to tuck your elbows in while bench pressing due to avoid excess stress on the shoulder joint and possibly help prevent surgery down the road.
Should you do the same for say a Dumbbell Shoulder Press and keep your elbows tuck in as well? Because it's practically the same movement just up instead of forward. What about Lateral Raises?
I reason I ask is because my shoulders are very irritated and I think it has to do with the fact when I first started lifting I didn't have proper form. Shoulder Presses, Lateral Raises and Barbell Bench put strain on my shoulders. Dumbbell Bench didn't due to the fact I naturally tucked in my elbows.
