How to Side Raise
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Sit on a stable surface holding a pair of weights at your sides. Tighten your abs to keep your core strong. Start each rep with your palms facing your hips and a small bend in your elbows.
Lift the weight to shoulder height moving along an arc to your sides. Pause briefly and slowly lower to the starting position.
You will get the most benefit by contracting your shoulder muscles and moving with control. Be sure to keep your abs engaged, torso stable, and chest up.
You should feel this exercise working your shoulders.
