How to do Machine Lateral Raise
Starting Position: Adjusting most machines is fairly simple. If there are pivot markers on the machine, raise or lower the seat so that your shoulders are in-line with the axis markers on the machine.
Sit comfortably in the machine and grasp the handles.
Form: Exhale as you raise your arms out to the side. Hold for a brief moment and then slowly lower to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: It is very important to maintain good posture throughout this exercise. Many people have a forward head posture, so it is important to keep your head erect during this exercise.
Use a comfortable range of motion. You don’t have to raise your arms up as high as possible. Raise your arms to about 90 degrees or a little above 90 degrees.
