Hi everyone, while recovering from a shoulder injury I had to avoid overhead barbell carries, so I started doing a variation with the barbell held at shoulder height, without touching the pecs or sternum.
I find that it works shoulders, traps, rhomboids and biceps very hard and in a different way than overhead carries.
Has anyone tried this? Considering that the frontal position of the bar alters the equilibrium and it has to be compensated by the spine, do you reckon that this variation is good, bad or plain useless?
I was impressed by how hard it hit the biceps.
I put a video below. EDIT: it didn't work.
Then: what about overhead dumbbell carries? Are they too unstable? I've never tried them but would really like to.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
