Shoulder Fly, Lateral Raise, Side Lateral Raise

Shoulder Abduction With Weights                                                                                               

A powerful abductor of the arm, when you study the medial or middle deltoid during a side lateral raise with electromyography (EMG), you find the rate of fatigue is faster then the other shoulder, trap and scapula muscles.  This is a good thing since the middle deltoid is exactly what you are trying to isolate in this movement.  Knowing the rate of fatigue is faster it is imperative that you maintain form during the movement, as it is easy to rotate your shoulder slightly and substitute with your anterior shoulder not completely engaging this failing muscle.
