Dumbbell Front Raise

The front raise is an isolation exercise for the shoulders, more specifically the front deltoid. The exercise also improves stability through the shoulder joint.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Don't lower the weights too quickly. Lower them slowly and with control.
  • Keep a slight bend in your elbows at all times.
  • Don't use momentum. Focus on controlling the movement and getting a good contraction in the shoulder.
