🔥How to Right Lateral Raises
✅ The lateral raise is one of the best exercises for those looking to build shoulders like boulders. Its also a very simple movement but dont let the simplicity of the movement fool you into thinking you’re in for an easy time
❌One of the most common mistakes I see with the side lateral raises are people raising their arms with their elbows locked out. Having the elbows locked out takes the emphasis off the intended muscle group(delts) and places it on the rotator cuffs which is a small group of delicate muscles. They dont need that strain
✅ Here is what you do. Stand with a straight torso and the dumbbells by your side at arms length with the palms of the hand facing you
While maintaining the torso in a stationary position (no swinging), lift the dumbbells to your side with a slight bend on the elbow and the hands slightly tilted forward as if pouring water in a glass
Continue to go up until your arms are parallel to the floor.
Pause at the top and slowly bring your arms back down to the start position. Repeat as needed
