Someone this did weird looking exercise a few months ago. I think he was trying to do DB shrugs or upright rows, but instead of stopping at the top portion of the shrug, he continues by bending the elbows and bringing the DBs up his sides to his armpits. Sort of look like a chimpanzee scratching its armpits.
yah I’ve seen a lot of that, not sure what their trying to do
Hang high pulls, or some goofy attempt at them.
Thats actually a real exercise. Its called a side row.
Nah, it’s different man, imagine him doing a lateral raise, the upper arm stays parallel to the floor, then his elbows are flexed so the DBs are used to scratch his armpits. All he needs to do is flap his arms and I wuould’ve burst laughing.[/quote]
I’ve seen similar, except the guy was standing leaning back onto a high backed adjustable chair. He would then tuck his arms against his sides having elbows at 90 degrees.
Then he’d bring said db’s up and toward the centre to meet by rotating his shoulders (thus ensuring he couldn’t even claim it was a curl.) I asked this fellow exactly what this activity worked out. And he informed me its a chest exercise. Puzzle solved.
