When performing a seated, single arm V raise exercise, you want to first choose a weight that you want to use. Because your shoulder complex is made up of small muscles that stabilize this mobile joint, you want to keep the weight somewhat light to avoid stress on the joint. Next, sit up tall in a seat with your back away from the chair and your feet flat on the floor. Draw-in your abs and hold a dumbbell in one hand and start with your arm next to the side of your body. Next, raise one arm at a 45-degree angle in front of body until your hand reaches eye level. Be sure to keep your thumbs pointed up and avoid shrugging your shoulders and arching your back. Pause at the top and then return arm to the side of your body. Repeat on the same arm for the desired number of repetitions and then switch sides.
