Dumbbell Lateral Raise
Either standing or sitting upright with a dumbbell in each hand.
Starting position – arms straight down at side. Keep palms faced down throughout entire exercise.
Finishing position – arms straight out with the dumbbells at shoulder height. Motion should be slow and controlled. Don’t swing or use your legs.
Note: The movement can be varied to work the back deltoid as well. Do this by leaning forward at about a 45 degree angle and let your hands hang in front of you. The finishing movement should be the same.
