Anterior deltoids, this muscle helps you retain the upward and downward movement of your arms whilst performing lateral raises, they are larger in terms of mass compared to other arm muscles. They also help to keep your scapula stay flat opposite to your ribs.
The Supraspinatus, situated deep within your shoulder, right beside the rotator cuff. This muscle initiates shoulder abduction, it helps jump start the lateral raises in order for the deltoids to continue the heavy-lifting. Always be mindful that this muscle, because of its small mass, is relatively weak, so always start lateral raises smoothly to lessen the stress.
The Trapezius, this muscle takes off the work from the deltoids when your arms reach more than a 90-degree angle from the body, they are the ones which stop the shoulder from abducting as they elevate your shoulder girdle to maintain stability while raising your arms. This muscle is less involved with movements that keep your shoulder down. The Trapezius is situated across the back of the shoulders and on your upper back.
