One-Arm Side Laterals

The single-arm dumbbell lateral raise builds shoulder strength and muscle. It's a staple strength training move and is a great option for accessory work on upper body training days. This option lets you use slightly higher weight than you would when lifting both arms at once. Hold onto a post for balance, or do it free-standing to challenge core strength and stability.


  1. Builds shoulder strength and size, even with light weights
  2. Can help create balanced shoulder development between sides
  3. Easy to increase range of motion by holding onto a post and leaning to the side
