bent over lateral raise

How to do bent over lateral raise :

  1. Put your feet shoulder-width apart while keeping your knees slightly bent. Each hand should be holding a dumbbell with a neutral grip. Lean forward while maintaining a straight back and tight core by bending at the hips.
  2. The dumbbells should dangle in front of you with the palms facing one another and the arms outstretched. You will begin from here.
  3. Lift the dumbbells away from your body by raising your arms to the sides while maintaining a small bend in your elbows. To lift the weights, pay special attention to engaging your lateral deltoid muscles.
  4. Up until your arms are nearly parallel to the ground or a little higher, keep lifting the dumbbells. Feel the contraction in your lateral deltoids as you hold for a brief moment.
  5. Slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position, maintaining control and feeling the stretch in your lateral deltoids.
  6. Perform the desired number of repetitions, usually 10-15, depending on your fitness level and goals.
  7. Exhale as you increase the weights and inhale as you lower them.
  8. Release the dumbbells slowly after the set is over, then stand up straight to extend your shoulders.

The benefits of the bent over lateral raise :

It mainly works the lateral deltoid muscles, which makes the shoulders seem broader and more defined.
Enhancing upper body symmetry by strengthening the lateral deltoids contributes to balanced shoulder aesthetics.
The lateral delts maintain shoulder stability, encourage appropriate mobility, and lower the chance of accidents by being developed.
The alignment of the upper body as a whole can be improved by strengthening these muscles and preventing forward shoulder position.
Lifting, pushing, and transporting items all need lateral arm motions, which the workout helps with.
A strong lateral deltoid enhances the “V-taper” look, emphasizing the upper body’s athletic and aesthetic proportions.


To guarantee good form, always start with a lesser weight and raise it gradually as you get more accustomed to the exercise. As usual, get advice from a fitness expert if you’re new to this exercise or weightlifting to ensure safe and efficient performance.
