Bands Lateral Raise


  • Stand with both feet on top of the middle of the band. Grasp both handles of your resistance band with palms facing in.
  • At the same time, raise both arms straight out to your sides. Bring your arms to shoulder height level, adjust your band so that it is possible to do so without strain or too much ease.
  • Hold for approx 1-2 seconds. Then lower back to starting position.


  • This movement should be carried out slowly with concentration on the muscle at work. Remember to let the side deltoids do the work.. focus on the smooth arc in the range of motion. Be sure that you keep your back straight at all times.
