The electromyographic activity of the shoulder muscles deltoid--anterior portion (DA) and pectoralis major--clavicular portion (PMC) was tested on 24 male volunteers using a 2 channel TECA TE4 electromyograph and Hewlett Packard surface electrodes during the execution of four different modalities of frontal-lateral cross, dumbbells exercises. The results showed that all of the tested exercises developed high levels of action potential for both muscles. So, we justify the indication of all of them for physical fitness programmes for DA and PMC. Some suggestions to the use of the tested exercises are presented.
