Inclined Dumbbell Side Lateral Raises Overview

The inclined dumbbell side lateral raises is an isolation exercise that is single-joint for the deltoid (especially the middle).  This exercise will increase your shoulder mass and width. 

A great lateral head can give you the appearance of having wide shoulders. Although it can be difficult for beginners to do incline side laterals, they are an interesting variation of traditional lateral raises. 

How to Do it

  1. For starting position, grab a dumbbell with your right hand and lie down on your left side on an inclined bench. The angle should be between 40-60 degrees.
  2. Place the dumbbell on your right side, with your palm facing your thigh.
  3. Without bending your elbow, lift your arm so that it aligns with your shoulder rotating your palm inward. Keep your weight under control. 
  4. Continue for the prescribed number of repetitions with your right hand. Then switch to your left arm.

Inclined Dumbbell Side Lateral Raises Tips

  1. During the lift, you should slightly bend your elbow. 
  2. Your working arm should be parallel to your body in the final position.

  4. Keep your focus on the slow, controlled movements throughout the exercise.
