Beginning

Beginning Db One Arm Lateral Raise

1. As if pouring water into a glass, lift the dumbbell to your side with a slight bend in your elbow and your palm slightly angled forward. Continue to raise your arm until it is parallel to the floor.

2. As you perform this movement, exhale and pause for a second at the top.

Movement

Db One Arm Lateral Raise Movement

1. Stand with your feet facing forward and shoulder-width apart. The DB will be in your hand, with your arms hanging down at your side. Draw up the spine so that you are standing straight, and your neck is aligned with your shoulders, hips, knees and feet.

2. Lift one foot slightly off the ground (you will be doing the exercise on one leg only).

3. You'll be raising the DB with the arm that's opposite the leg that's off the ground. So if you're standing on your right leg, you'll be raising the DB with your right arm.

4. Tighten up the core muscles to support the spine and back, then raise DB to the side up to shoulder level. Your elbow should be extended, and your wrists in line with your forearm. Your palms should be facing toward the ground.

5. Bring your arm back to your side and repeat for the required number of repetitions.

6. Make sure that your body doesn't rock back and forth during the exercise, and that you're not using momentum to throw the weight up.
