Side Lateral Raise
Dumbbell lateral raises will help build strong shoulders and improve definition.
- Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and your abs tight, grasp a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing towards your body. Keep a slight bend in your knees as you raise your arms to the side until your palms face the floor. Hold this position briefly then lower slowly.
- Try to feel as if you're leading with your elbows and keep your wrists lower than your elbows.
- Resist the temptation to swing the weights. Your shoulders should do the lifting, not momentum.
