Cable bent over lateral raises


Major muscles used

  • Deltoids - Side and rear shoulders
  • Trapezius

Performing bent over lateral raises (cable)

  • Attach a single handle to a pulley machine from below.
  • Get down on "all fours" and grip the handle with your left hand while being supported with your right hand and knees.
  • Make sure your back is straight and parallel to the floor.
  • Raise your left hand to slightly above shoulder height, with a slight bend in the elbows, palms facing the floor.
  • Hold this position for a brief second while squeezing your shoulder muscles.
  • Return to the starting position in a slow, controlled manner.

Be careful

  • Don't swing your hand up or jerk the weight in an attempt to lift the weight.
  • Don't use too heavy of a weight that doesn't allow you to use proper form. The weight for this exercise should be light.
