How To Do Lateral Raises Properly

  • While holding a resistance in each hand, such as a dumbbell, kettlebell or a cable attachment, lean slightly forward with your arms slightly bent so that your hands are just in front of your hips.
  • Maintain this torso and arm position throughout the exercise.
  • While bracing your core and flexing your glutes, raise the weight laterally until your hands are higher than your shoulders before controlling the descent back to the start position.
  • Focus on just utilizing your shoulders to lift the weight and control the entire movement.
