The lateral delt lift helps to strengthen the muscles of the outside of the shoulder. This exercise should be done in a slow and control manner. Holding dumbbells by your side with your palms facing inward, lift your arm so the side, no higher than the shoulder. Lifting too high can cause unnecessary stress on the shoulder and neck muscles. Slowly lower your arms down to your side. Chose weight that leaves you fatigued after 12-15 repetitions. For an extra challenge, lift one knee while lifting the arms, alternating sides, to work on balance.
