Lateral Raises 101
This is a deep dive on everything you need to know about the lateral raise.
The lateral raise (or side raise) is an amazing exercise to build the lateral head of your deltoids. The medial delts don't get hit as directly as the front and rear delts so it's good to do some direct work on this area to maximize muscle growth. But you need to do it properly to reap the benefits of this accessory muscle move.
The topics covered include:
- How to maximally activate the lateral delts
- The ideal height to raise your arms
- The ideal amount of elbow bend to use
- The top techniques to build your medial shoulders
- And much more!
