Seated Rear Dumbbell Lateral Raise Overview

Rear lateral raise is among the exercises that promote the rear deltoids' strength and hypertrophy (growth in size). It is also known as the bent-over lateral raise. You can find these little muscles on the backs of your shoulders. Rear lateral raises enhance good posture and facilitate both everyday and sports activity.

How to Do It?

  • Sit on a bench while leaning slightly forward with dumbbells in your hands. Keep your palms facing one another directly under your shoulders.
  • Maintaining your arms straight, exhale. Now raise the dumbbells to your sides and towards your upper back simultaneously with a shrugging movement.
  • Continue until your arms become parallel to the ground, keeping them straight.
  • Inhale and lower the dumbbells while maintaining the forward lean in your torso, returning to the starting position.

Seated Rear Dumbbell Lateral Raise Tips

  • Ensure that your back is not rounded. Extend your chest out to assist your lower back naturally arched.
  • Breathe. When lifting dumbbells, remember to breathe out.
  • At the top position, concentrate on tightening the shoulder blades together.
