This is The Stephane Andre and today I’m talking about machine lateral raise. I read Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and there is good stuff.
Sit on the machine and take the handles :
Inhale and raises your elbows to the horizontal
Exhale at the end of the movement
This exercise mainly works the lateral deltoid and also the supra-spinous muscles. If you raise your elbows beyond the horizontal, you’ll work the upper part of trapezius.
Note: This is a good exercise for beginners that doesn’t require any positioning effort and allows to do sets with high reps.
