Standing bent-over dumbbell laterals is a shoulder exercise that primarily targets the posterior deltoid muscles. To perform this exercise, stand up and hold a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing your body while keeping your back straight. Bend forward at your hips and raise both arms out to your sides, keeping your elbows slightly bent and your palms facing down. Lift the weights up to shoulder height and pause for a second before slowly lowering them to the starting position. This exercise can be done using light to moderate weights, and it can be a great addition to any shoulder workout routine. It also helps to develop the rear delts, which can help to improve overall posture and reduce the risk of shoulder injuries. It's important to maintain proper form throughout the exercise, and avoid using momentum or swinging the weights, as this can lead to injury and reduce the effectiveness of the exercise. It's recommended to start with lighter weights and gradually increase the weight as you become more comfortable with the movement.
