🔴 A SIDE LATERAL RAISES VARIATION

✅ Great exercise for the side delts (medial head). ⁣

🚨 This may or may not be my new favorite exercise to target this (typically lagging) muscle area. It just feels right to me.⁣

🚨 Why? ⁣

✅ First of all, with this set up, the lines of force align with the muscle fibers targeted, therefore performing the exercise will maximize the side delt contraction in isolation.⁣

Another great reason is that it makes it impossible for you to cheat the exercise with leg/full body -induced momentum (which is what you typically end up doing on classic lateral raises). ⁣

When it comes to performing it, you can either lay on a flat bench or even on the floor as long as the cables are adjustable.

✅ Grab the left cable with the right hand and the right one with the left hand (crossing over) and lay on the bench/floor. ⁣

At this point, you want to perform a lateral raise like you would standing. ⁣Controlled reps, maximizing the ROM and using a weight that allows you to perform 8-10 reps.

Give this exercise a try, especially if you’re trying to grow your shoulders

  1. I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced to your post.
    They’re very convincing and can certainly work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies.

    May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
