Banded Lateral Raise Overview

The lateral raise is a great move for toning the shoulders. Using a resistance band forces you to use more stabilizer muscles, which helps to create a more well-rounded workout. It provides constant resistance throughout the entire range of motion, which helps to better target the shoulder muscles. Third, the resistance band can be easily adjusted to provide different levels of difficulty, making it a great exercise for both beginners and advanced athletes

How to Do It

  1. Start by standing up straight, feet shoulder-width apart, with a resistance band looped around both wrists in front of you.
  2. Keeping your core engaged, raise your arms out to the sides until they’re parallel with the ground.
  3. Pause for a moment, then slowly lower your arms back to the starting position.
  4. Repeat for the desired number of reps 

Banded Lateral Raise Tips

  1. Keep your shoulders down and your core engaged throughout the exercise.
  2. Don’t swing your arms as you raise them; use controlled motions only.
  3. If the resistance band is too light, try a heavier one. If it’s too heavy, try a lighter one.
  4. If you have any pain in your shoulders or elbows, stop the exercise and consult a doctor or physical therapist
