Chest Supported Lateral Raises
Chest Supported Lateral Raises / Benefits
- The chest supported lateral raise is a shoulder strengthening exercise that targets the lateral deltoids and posterior deltoids. In addition, due to the position of the movement, it enables the trapezius muscles to work.
- The position of the angle you set in this exercise is important because if you lower the incline, the focus will be entirely on your posterior deltoid muscles, and if you bring the incline fully upright, the target will be on your lateral deltoid muscles. It is recommended to adjust the incline according to the muscle group you want to emphasize in this exercise.
