This was my day for dumbbell side raises. Care to join me?
This exercise is perfect for developing your delts. For 100 percent optimal results, here are three tips:
1. You want to lean forward slightly when you perform the exercise.
2. You want to raise the dumbbells at a diagonal angle.
3. You don't want your pinkies pointing directly up or your thumbs pointing directly down. Just try and keep your hands in a neutral position.
Through the years I've gotten all kinds of advice on how to do the best lateral dumbbell raise. I've been following these tips for about a year now and have seen good results while mitigating injury. Give these tips a try during your next delts workout and see if you notice the difference!
