Lateral Delt Resistance Band Shoulder Exercises
Next up is the side of your shoulder otherwise known as the lateral delt. This part of the muscle is what gives your shoulders width and a rounded appearance when viewed from the front or back.
4-5. Resistance Band Lateral Raise
For the resistance band lateral raises, there are two variations. One involves working both arms at the same time. And the second involves working one arm at a time.
Begin by standing on the center of the band and grab one end in each hand with your arms at your sides.
From here, raise your arms until they reach about even with your shoulders while keeping a slight bend in your elbows. Think about pushing your elbows towards the ceiling instead of pushing through your hands.
Also, keep your palms facing the floor. But as you come upward, tilt your thumbs down slightly. As if you’re pouring out a pitcher of water. This helps to activate the lateral delt more.
