How to Do Cable Lateral Raises
- Grip a handle connected to the lower position on a cable pulley. Stand close to the pulley, with the arm holding the handle facing away from the machine.
- With control, lift the handle outwards to your sides, until your upper arm is horizontal.
- Lower the handle with control.
- Repeat for reps.
This is an exercise where it is easy to pick a weight that is too heavy. Rather err on the lighter side, and strive for a strict form where you focus on getting good contact with your delts.
