Side Lateral Raises with a TWEAK
Shoulder training tip:
Lat raises with a tweak!
This is a method I adopted after I considered how much traps and lev scap and scalenes get worked accidentally when doing a lat raise.
By extending the arm at the top of the lift in side lat raise, you need to release traps. Also if you’re holding the dumbbell at the top and the extend and slightly internally rotate, you can’t be throwing the weight up and cheating it up. So that means you are using a weight in which your delts can manage and really feel.
Start with a slight bend in the arm, perform a standard lat raise: at the top extend the arm as if your punching slightly forward. Then lower the weight and repeat.
Be prepared for a pump and burn !!!
Give it a go next time you hit shoulders .
