I keep a very slight bend at the elbows and raise the weight to just over parallel. Slow negative. Don't go too heavy. It's an accessory lift.

I wouldnt go to far past parallel, with side or front db raises, you could do some damage to rotator cuff.

Haha I see people do those incorrectly all the time.

And I see people cheating at preacher curls frequently also. Isn't the whole point of preacher curls to NOT CHEAT?

Hey, Ross is right. Anything can be done wrong. The important point nobody has mentioned is that it is best to do them in the 'scapular plane'. That is with the arms in toward the body about 20 to 30 degrees. Rather than straight out to the sides. That is actually a bigger contributer to the stress on the small RC muscles than going above parallel. And I prefer to do them with a natural grip.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
