How to do the dumbbell lateral raise

The benefits the dumbbell lateral raise

  1. The dumbbell lateral raise focuses on the lateral deltoid muscles, which helps to strengthen and define the shoulders.
  2. Dumbbell lateral rises, which isolate each shoulder independently, can help treat muscular imbalances or deficiencies on the left and right sides.
  3. Performing lateral raises activates the stabilizing muscles surrounding the shoulder joint, improving shoulder stability and lowering the chance of injury.
  4. Lateral raises simulate ordinary actions like moving goods to the side, making them a useful workout for daily tasks.

Exercise Tips:

  • Maintain your chest up, shoulders down and back, and core engaged throughout the action. Keep your elbows slightly bent to avoid locking out the joints.
  • Lift the dumbbells out to the sides until they are shoulder height or slightly lower, leading with your elbows.
  • Lower the dumbbells slowly and steadily back to the starting position, defying gravity and using the shoulder muscles eccentrically.
  • Throughout the exercise, focus on activating the lateral deltoid muscles rather than swinging or using momentum.
