    Something besides Standing Lateral Raises?

    I just started doing WBB1 routine and my right shoulder cant take the standing lateral raises. What is an alternative exercise I could do? Thanks

    I hate this exercise. IMO it is a waste of time since it is an isolated exercise. Do some military presses is my recommendation. Good luck!

    I belive Anthony posted not long ago that this exercise creates a better contraction in the obliques than the delts.

    Yeah and I like it for it's use in the real world. Like when you need to lift something over your head, support something heavy above you, pick someone up before a bodyslam, etc. It's a real useful exercise to get strong in.
