The Lateral Raise is great for the shoulders, goodness I love my shoulders!

Lateral Raise Start Position
Lateral Raise End Position


  1. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, knees soft. Arms by your side, palms facing inwards.
  2. Keeping the body still, raise the arms to the side with a slight bend in the elbows, leading with the shoulders (use the shoulder muscles to raise the arms), exhale as you raise the arms parallel to the floor.
  3. Hold for a second and lower the dumbbells back down slowly to the starting position as you inhale.
