Cable Seated Lateral Raise

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on seat above twin cable pulleys. Grasp stirrups on each side. Sit upright with arms nearly straight down to each side.

Execution

With elbows slightly bent, raise arms to side until elbows are shoulder height. Lower and repeat.

Comments

Maintain fixed slightly bent elbow position throughout exercise. At top of movement, elbows (not necessarily dumbbells) should be directly lateral to shoulders since elbows are slightly bent forward. Stirrup is raised by shoulder abduction, not external rotation. If elbows drop lower than wrists, front deltoids become primary mover instead of lateral deltoids.
