Exercise Index – Overhead Cable Raise for Posture and Lower Traps Health

I like the overhead plate raise, but it does not always work well if you have cast iron plates. 25lbs can be too narrow, while the 45 is unwieldy and too heavy.

An alternative exercise that is arguably superior is the motion done with a cable, an overhead cable raise.

This allows for more precise weight adjustment, and being able to lean back creates a smoother resistance curve.

This is not a heavy exercise. Workout sets should be in the 10-20 rep range, and you can perform 2-3 sets.
