Training Tip Tuesday – DB Side Raises

Side raises are one of my favorites.

They’re great for two reasons.

The first is that, when done correctly, you can really hit the delts and put them under a lot of tension.

Secondly, they don’t put much pressure on the shoulder joint when done correctly. This means you can do them up to 3 times a week with minimal risk of injury.

Watch the video below to see how to do them properly.


As you saw in the video you want to bring your elbows up to shoulder level.

Really focus on the squeeze at the top as this is what is going to get your shoulders to grow.

To challenge yourself grab a light set of dumbbells and do 10 reps then double the weight of them and rep out 20 more partial reps out of the bottom.

Just a warning, these will burn like crazy.

Doing an extended set like that is going to cause you to bust out of any shoulder plateus and take your training to the next level.
