How to do Side Lateral Raise with Dumbbells

1. Choose the weight that you can do between 12 - 15 reps.

2. We will do 3-4 sets.

3. Stand with two dumbbells at your sides.

4. If you feel pain in your shoulder or you hear a clicking sound from your shoulder, positioning dumbbells slightly to the front helps.
(please always consult with your doctor before doing exercise, this is not medical advice)

5. Raise your arms outwards and slightly front up to the shoulder height.

6. When returning the dumbbells to the starting position, slowly return as much as you can.

7. Returning is very important. Many people only care about raising posture, but returning posture is equally important.
