Are you looking to build stronger, more defined shoulders? The incline bench lateral raise superset is a great exercise to add to your shoulder workout routine. This exercise targets the lateral deltoid muscles, which are responsible for shoulder abduction (moving your arms away from your body).
To perform the incline bench lateral raise superset, you will need an incline bench and a set of dumbbells. Begin by setting the bench to a moderate incline and sitting on the bench with your feet flat on the ground. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and let your arms hang down by your sides.
Next, raise your arms out to the sides, keeping them bent at a 90-degree angle. Be sure to keep your elbows slightly bent and your palms facing down throughout the movement. Lower the dumbbells back down to starting position and repeat.
To make this exercise even more challenging, you can try increasing the weight of the dumbbells or adding in a second superset of a different shoulder exercise, such as a front raise or Arnold press.
Incorporating the incline bench lateral raise superset into your shoulder workout routine can help increase muscle size and strength, as well as improve overall shoulder definition. Give it a try and see the benefits for yourself!
