How to do the dumbbell single arm lateral raise

The benefits of the dumbbell single arm lateral raise

  1. The dumbbell single arm lateral raise primarily works the lateral deltoid muscles, which helps to increase shoulder strength and definition.
  2. Focusing on one arm at a time promotes healthy development of the shoulder muscles, lowering the likelihood of muscular imbalances and asymmetries.
  3. Performing the exercise with one arm provides for a wider range of motion than bilateral lateral rises, which can contribute to increased shoulder mobility and flexibility.

Exercise Tips:

  • Maintain your chest up, shoulders down and back, and core engaged throughout the action. Maintain a modest bend in your elbow to avoid locking the joint.
  • Lift the dumbbell out to the side until it reaches shoulder height or slightly lower, guiding with your elbow.
  • Lower the dumbbell 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.
