How To Perform Exercise

The rear lateral raise exercise is one of the best ways to work your shoulders and build muscle mass.

Steps :

1.) Start off by placing a dumbbell on each side of a incline bench and lie face down on the bench with your toes planted on the floor.

2.) Grab a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing down and then raise your arms up until your elbows are at shoulder height.

3.) Hold for a count and keep your arms perpendicular to your chest then return back to the starting position.

Tips :

1.) It is important to keep your wrists straight during the exercise and your elbows above your wrists.

2.) Refrain from swinging the dumbbells and lift using your shoulders.
