Who better to demonstrate the movement than the Austrian Oak? Lying Side Laterals do a fantastic job of bringing out both the rear and side delts. This exercise should only be done with a moderate weight and performed very strictly.

Lay down on your side and raise your head, holding a dumbbell in one hand, lower it almost to the floor.

Now raise the weight up all the way above your head, with your arm kept straight. Just as with other lateral exercises Twist your wrist slightly while lifting as if you were pouring water from a pitcher so you get a peak contraction.
