Shoulder Lateral Raise

Start: Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart while holding two dumbbells neutral grips on your sides.

Move: Slowly raise the dumbbells up and out to your sides. Keep your arms straight with a very slight bend in your elbows. When your arms reach parallel with the floor, pause in this position for a second before slowly lowering the dumbbells back to the starting position.
The goal here is to train the deltoids muscles. If you feel it more in the upper and middle trapezius muscles, reduce the range of of motion and raise the raise the arms below parallel or reduce the load with a lighter dumbbell.
