Suspension Strap Side Raise

  • Intermediate
  • Suspension Trainer
  • Shoulders

Setup instructions

1) Start with a high anchor point and attach the suspension strap - it should be a mid length.

2) Grab the handle and take a few side steps (your shoulder should be facing the anchor). Extend your arm and lean slightly in the opposite direction - you're aiming for the strap to support you in this position. The anchor, shoulder, arm, legs and upper body should all be aligned.

Perform instructions

1) Keep the arm straight as you slowly lift it towards the ceiling.

2) Pause at the top. Now, reverse the movement back to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
