Lateral Raises

Main muscle worked: Side delts

How to perform this exercise?

  • Start with a pair of dumbbells in your hands and your elbows slightly bent
  • From that position lift your arms straight out to the sides until your shoulders and elbows are in line.
  • In the top position tilt your pinky up (and thumb down), almost like your pouring from a bottle
  • Lead with your elbows and avoid using momentum to swing the dumbbells up.
