The lateral raise exercise targets your deltoids to develop a pop-eye like bulge as your upper arm meets your shoulder. With weights by your side, contract the abdominals to keep your spine stable. Prepare to stretch your arms to shoulder level to the position that forms like a “T”. Keep the arms rested and elbows open. Rotate elbows slightly outward to isolate the shoulder muscles then gradually lower back to the starting position. This is one of the popular workout moves to strengthen the shoulders.
