2 NO CHEAT Lateral Raise Variations You Should Use On Shoulder Day

The lateral raise is a popular shoulder building exercise.

Unfortunately, a lot of people cheat their way through this key lift.

Luckily, Team MHP athlete Chris Bumstead has a couple of tough variations for this shoulder staple that will help prevent you from cheating.

Exercise 1: Lying Lateral Raise

Traditional lateral raises have a restricted range of motion. To increase it, lay sideways on a bench or preacher machine.

This allows for full tension on the deltoid from the very beginning of the movement.

Exercise 2: Hanging Lateral Raise

For the next variation, instead of lying, you’ll be leaning. Grab a firm hold onto something sturdy, lean sideways, and perform your lateral raises.

This variation allows for better tension at the end of the movement.
