I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and there is good stuff.
Standing with your feet slightly apart. Your arms are along your body with the handle in your hand in semi-pronation :
Inhale and raise your arms until your eyes level
Exhale at the end of the movement
This exercice works your deltoid (mainly anterior beams) and pectoralis major (upper chest) and a little bit the short head of biceps.
This movement is better when you do high reps.
Variant : You can do this exercice with a dumbbell
Note : This exercice is good for people who have difficulty to develop anterior beams. The hand in semi-pronation carries the humerus in external rotation. It’s good because at the beginning of movement it stretches anterior beams and you really feel the work.
