Bent Dumbbell Lateral Raises

Bent Dumbbell Lateral Raises

Model: Shaun Campbell, IDFA Founder & Pro Natural Bodybuilder

Grasp dumbbells to each side. Bend knees slightly and bend over through hips with back flat, 0° to 30° parallel to the floor.

Raise upper arms to sides until elbows are shoulder height. Maintain upper arms perpendicular to torso and a fixed elbow position (10° to 30° angle) throughout exercise. Maintain height of elbows above wrists. Lower under control and repeat.

Upper arm should travel in a perpendicular path to the torso to minimize latissimus dorsi involvement. To exercise posterior deltoid and not the lateral deltoid, keep torso close to horizontal. Don’t swing the dumbbells.
