        That's way too heavy. Try 6kg and keep your form super strict.

        Personally I use 7kg but i'm not an advanced lifter. If you look at most people who use heavy weights for lateral raises you'll notice that they always use momentum and keep the weight more in front to cheat/help.

          It's most probably shit I might cut it down to 8 or lower. In retrospect with 8kg I was doing fine, now that I have something heavier it does feel like I'm cheating on my form.

        Personally, prefer cable egyptian raise, google it. Impossible to cheat, better resistance curve

      One cue for better engagement I've heard and that helps really well is imagining you're at the beach, putting your hand in the sand and then lifting it.

    Lean forward a little, tilt your wrist down so “pinkies to the sky”, controlled descent is where the connection is going to be easiest felt.
    Lower the weight if you can’t do more than 3sets of 10

    Grab a weight that you can move slowly enough to not have to hoist it up, i.e. grab a weight that you're stronger than it needs to be lifted.

    So then just slowly lift the weight with the mantra of "I can stop moving the weight anywhere in the range of motion and keep it there easily."

    Then, you focus on the weight in your hand and how much you need to 'push' against it to move the weight.

    Presto done, you now have a connection with your muscle.

    Do thumbless grip.
    Thumb should be above the pinky.
    Slightly lean forward.

    you shouldnt lift them directly to your side
    they should be about 20-30 degrees in front of you

    just go lighter. there is no powerlifting category for fuckin delt flies. go light, big volume until you just can't bring your arms up anymore, even with your hands empty

    My 5-day program only does this once a week. Does that seem right?
