Lu Raises For Shoulder Strength & Mobility

The Chinese Olympic Lifting Champion Lu Xiaojun popularized it.

I’ve been asked about this exercise a lot.

This is not a new exercise that he invented.

It’s existed in training literature since the 1920s.

Bill Pearl describes it in his Keys to the Inner Universe book.

What’s it good for?

  • It’s a lateral raise.
  • It develops the medial deltoids, the supraspinatus, and all the regions of the trapezius.
  • It trains strength, hypertrophy, and mobility all at the same time.

You can do sets in the 10-20 range and 2-4 sets.

It would take the place of conventional lateral raises.
