Dumbbell Lateral Raise

The dumbbell lateral raise will always be a staple exercise for bodybuilders and physical fitness enthusiasts who lift for aesthetic reasons. The simple reason is because they isolate one of the top 5 'glamour muscles' and if performed properly dumbbell lateral raises completely isolate the medial deltoids. The problem with dumbbell lateral raises is when they are not performed properly which is usually due to using excessive weight, they will miss the target and possibly lead to an disproportioned physique.
