EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: Use a 90* bench and take a neutral-grip on each dumbbell.
  2. LIFT: Keep your shoulders pinned back to the bench and lift each weight to a wide 45* angle, until your elbows are level with your shoulders and your hands are in a “thumbs up” position. Lower the weights under control.
  3. TIP: Weird exercise, I know. Think of this as a cross between a Front Raise and a Lateral Raise. It will spread the workload equally between the front delts and middle delts, and most people have one group much stronger than the other, so expect this to burn!

MUSCLES WORKED BY THIS EXERCISE:

  • Shoulders (Front Delts, Middle Delts)
DUMBBELL LATERAL RAISE
