Has anyone else watched Thor: Love and Thunder yet? I had mixed feelings. When I say "sculpted by Zeus himself," I am referring to the Zeus depicted in Disney's animated classic, Hercules. Not Russel Crowe's Zeus from the latest Thor movie. Moving on....
The Bent Lateral Raise should be a stable in everyone's shoulder and back protocol for workouts.
This exercise can both improve posture and give our shoulders a more well-rounded look. The bent lateral raise trains the post delts, lateral delts, traps, and rhomboids. Aka it trains the back of the shoulders and upper back both of which play a role in shoulder stability, posture, and how we look in a tank top.
Key Points of Performance:
*don't bounce, keep these strict
*Flat, neutral back
*squeeze at the top
*control the descent
I like 3 sets of 12-15 reps. Start light on these and aim to increase weight over time. Form first here.
