Coach's Tips

It's a workout that can target the shoulder on the sides. When you lower your arm, only lower it down to the point where there still is resistance and raise it again!

How to Band Lateral Raise

Starting Position

1. Stand up straight with your feet hip-width apart, and hold a resistance band in each hand.

2. Lift your arms out to the side, with your elbows slightly bent, and your palms facing down.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your elbows slightly bent, raise your arms up and out to the side, until your arms are parallel to the floor.

2. Hold for a moment, then return to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you begin the movement, and exhale as you raise your arms up.

2. Make sure to keep your chest and shoulders relaxed throughout the exercise.


1. Make sure to keep your back straight and your core engaged throughout the exercise.

2. If you feel any pain or discomfort, stop the exercise.
