The most weight lifted by lateral raises in one hour was 19,600 kg (43,210 lb) by Eamonn Keane (Ireland) at Louisburgh Gym in Louisburgh, Ireland, on 1 February 2011.
A lateral raise is defined as standing upright and lifting dumbbells in each hand laterally with the shoulders so that the upper arm performs a 90-degree angle to the rest of the torso. 19 of the repetitions at the end of the attempt were discounted as they were not lifted to proper technique (the shoulders/upper arms were raised forward as opposed to laterally).
