To perform Dumbbell (DB) Lateral Raises, hold a dumbbell in each hand. Whether you do this exercise standing or seated, be sure to keep your back straight. Keep a slight bend in your elbows and slowly lift the weight out to the side until your arms are parallel with the floor. Use a slow, controlled tempo and pause at the top. Do not swing up, or you will engage your traps.

DB Lateral Raises are part of your Shoulders/Calves workout. Do 4 sets of 12 reps or 2 reps short of failure.
