Lateral raises focus on shoulders. They effectively work out your deltoids and traps.
Initial position: Hold a dumbbell in each hand with your arms by your sides, shoulders are neutral, palms facing inward, and there is a slight bend in your knees.
What to do:
Keeping your arms straight, lift the dumbbells out to the sides, but no higher than your shoulders.
Pause, make sure your back is still neutral and your knees are slightly bent.
Slowly lower the dumbbells to the initial position.
Repeat 30 times.
Note: Lower the weight slowly to feel the tension in your muscles.
