Standing Dumbbell Lateral Raise Start

Hold the dumbbells in front of your thighs with your elbows and knees slightly bent as well as a slight hinge forward in the hips. Exhale and lift the dumbbells up to the sides. Focus on lifting the weight through the elbow and keeping the wrist at a level height with the elbow. The wrist should never be higher than the elbows in the exercise. Slowly lower the weight back down to the starting position. 

Be sure to keep your stomach braced through the exercise. This exercise can be performed seated. Do not perform this exercise if you have shoulder pain. Contact us if you have any questions on this exercise and its variations! One of our trainers would love to help you!
