Curl Bar Lateral Raises

Lateral Raises are a very popular exercise, however a lot of people have trouble targeting their lateral delts when using dumbbells. They end up feeling the lift in their biceps or in their traps.

I believe some of the trouble comes from using a Dumbbell, and the weight being very concentrated. I've noticed a much better contraction when I used a straight bar or an empty seat Preacher curl bar.

I believe that fact that you have to balance the weight out evenly in your hand and creat a natural level with your hand forces you to place the bar on the correct path and subsequently gets you a much better contraction.

Give this #toolfromatoolbag a try and let me know how it works for you!
