Incline Shoulder Raise
How to: Incline Shoulder Raise
Primary Muscles Used:Shoulders, Anterior Deltoid
Exercise Families:Shoulder Flexion
- Set an incline bench to a 35-degree angle. Holding one dumbbell in each hand, lie face down on the bench with both knees resting on the seat or feet planted on either side of the bench — whichever is most comfortable. Extend your arms to hold the dumbbells directly below your chest in an underhand grip (palms facing up).This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Using the muscles in your shoulders and back, slowly raise the dumbbells upwards and outwards until your arms are in line with your ears and they resemble the shape of a ‘Y’. You should feel a small squeeze between your shoulder blades.
- Inhale. Gently lower the dumbbells to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
