Overview

The machine lateral raise is an exercise that targets the shoulders. It is performed by sitting on a machine with your back against the pad and your arms extended in front of you. You then lift the weights up to shoulder height, keeping your elbows slightly bent. The machine lateral raise is a good exercise for building the lateral deltoid muscles, which are the muscles on the side of your shoulders.
