The benefits of the bent over lateral raise shoulder

  1. This exercise mainly works the lateral deltoid muscles, which contributes to shoulders that are larger and more defined.

Exercise Tips:

  • Keep your elbows slightly bent, and maintain a slight bend in your knees throughout the exercise.
  • Lift the dumbbells out to the sides, leading with your elbows, until they reach shoulder level or slightly below. Focus on using your lateral deltoid muscles.
  • Lower the dumbbells back down slowly, resisting the urge to swing or use momentum. Maintain control throughout the movement.
  • Lift the dumbbells as high as your shoulder joint comfortably allows. Avoid overextending or shrugging your shoulders.
  • Exhale as you lift the dumbbells and inhale as you lower them.
  • Start with 2-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions. Use a weight that challenges you but allows for proper form.
