This exercise focuses on working the medial deltoid (side shoulder) muscle.
- Stand with feet slightly apart, and your back straight. Your arms should be hanging at your sides about a foot away from your body. Face your palms inward holding a dumbbell in each hand.
- As you exhale, raise the dumbbells at your sides, keeping your elbows slightly bent.
- Continue to raise dumbbells until they are level with your shoulders. Inhale and lower arms slowly to the starting position. This completes one rep.
- Do 12-15 reps or as desired.
