The Hammer Strength Plate Loaded Lateral Raise was blueprinted from human movement. Separate weight horns engage independent diverging and converging motions for equal strength development and muscle stimulation variety. And the back pad is angled 25 degrees to better align the medial deltoid.
The unique path of motion on the Hammer Strength Plate Loaded Lateral Raise fills in the gap between the shoulder press and chest press. Patented Iso Lateral Movements allow users to train in converging and diverging movements with both limbs together, independently and alternating. The counterbalanced system allows for very light starting weights that are perfect for rehabilitation, aging adults, and beginners. The advanced movement works on a controlled path of motion so there is no learning curve to experience a more advanced movement.
