Dumbbell Lateral Raises

Dumbbell Lateral Raises

Position two dumbbells to sides, palms facing in, and arms straight.

With elbows slightly bent, raise upper arms to sides until elbows are parallel with your shoulders. Maintain elbows’ height above or equal to wrists. Lower using controlled form and repeat.

Maintain fixed elbow position (10° to 30° angle) throughout exercise. As the elbows drop lower than the wrists, the front deltoids become the primary mover instead of the lateral deltoids. Palms face downward throughout the movement.
