About this move:

This exercise works the middle deltoid head from an angle different from typical standing or seated lateral raises. Because of the angle, I find it works the muscle closer to its insertion on the arm.

Everyone does some kind of lateral-raise movement in their delt routine, but as with any muscle group, changing the angle alters the stimulus.

I like to use this exercise toward the beginning of my shoulder workout because of its extreme isolation; it’s simply harder to cheat when you’re lying on a bench. I often use it to pre-exhaust the middle head before doing upright rows, for example, or at the start of a super-set.

Key training tips:

• Always keep your elbow higher than your wrist, and your pinkie finger higher than your thumb, as you can see in the video. Doing so will keep the tension on the middle head while resisting help from either the brachialis or front delt.

• You probably won’t be able to handle a lot of weight so it becomes harder to do later on as you fatigue.

• I recommend 12-20 strict reps for each side for three sets.
