Tip: Incline Lateral Raise for Wide Shoulders

Bring up your side or lateral delts and you'll change the whole look of your physique. Try this exercise.

The incline lateral raise is an isolation exercise for the side or lateral head of the delt.

  1. Lie sideways on an incline bench with a dumbbell.
  2. When performing the movement, don't let the dumbbell touch your body at the bottom. Keep the tension constant.
  3. Many people bring the dumbbell up too high, which only causes them to lose tension in the targeted muscle.
