[Elite_video_player id=”390″]

Muscle Groups
  • Shoulders
  • Deltoid strength (emphasis: lateral head)


The single-arm dumbbell lateral raise is a good way to shape and define your shoulders. Doing only one side at a time forces the other side to stabilize, thus working your core at the same time. This exercise can also be performed with a cable or resistance band.


  • Standing tall, hold a dumbbell in one hand with your arm hanging straight.
  • Keeping your arm straight, lift the dumbbell to the side.
  • Stop at shoulder height and then return the dumbbell to the start position.


  • Shrugging the shoulders excessively
  • Hunching forward
  • Leaning back
  • Torso bending to the side
