The lateral raise is a great exercise to do perform to give your shoulders that nice, round look.

Here’s how to perform it correctly.

1 Stand with your feet around shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand by your sides, palms facing inwards.

2 Engage your core and squeeze your glutes to provide a strong base, and then raise your arms out to the sides, stopping when your arms are parallel with the floor.

3 At the top of the exercise, your arms should be slightly in front of your torso, and your elbows should have a soft bend.

4 Pause before slowly lowering back to starting position.
