Guide for Cable Lateral Raise

  • Only the shoulders should work during the exercise. Do not swing with the upper body
  • Do not perform the exercise with too heavy weights, it will only engage wrong muscles
  • Pull back the shoulders and pull the  shoulder blades together, push the chest forward
  • Tense the torso and fix the upper body so as not to swing
  • Lift the weight slowly upwards, just let it past your shoulders
  • Hold in the top position for a few seconds
  • Lower the weight in a calm and slow manner, always with tension in the muscle you are exercising. 
  • Do not pull your shoulders up to your ears
  • You should lift out to the side and not forward. If you lift forward, the front part of your shoulders takes over instead of the outer part
  • Exhale on the way up and inhale on the way down
