Inside The Gym: Single Arm Cable Lateral / Side Raise

Inside The Gym: Single Arm Cable Lateral / Side Raise

Stand with your right side to a cable machine. Reach across your body with the left hand and grab the handle of the pulley. Stand with a braced core and maintain a slight bend in the elbows throughout. Lifting from the shoulder, pull your left hand up and to the side. Pause at the top of the movement. Slowly lower the handle but do not allow the weight to touch the stack.

The one-arm cable lateral raise is an isolated shoulder exercise that targets the deltoids, while increasing stability in both the wrists and the core.
