Dumbbell Front Raise Overview

From firming up your arms to improving your posture, dumbbell front raise is an excellent exercise. This move targets the anterior deltoid muscles located at the front of the shoulders. As we all know, strong shoulders are essential for good posture.

The dumbbell front raise also helps to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles, which are responsible for stabilizing the shoulder joint. In addition, this exercise can help to improve your range of motion and prevent injuries by stretching your chest and front of the shoulders.

How to Do

  1. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a dumbbell in each hand at arm's length in front of you with your palms facing your thighs. 
  2. Slowly raise the dumbbells up to shoulder height. Hold the dumbbells roughly 4 inches away from your body.
  3. Pause for a moment when you reach the top before lowering them back down to the starting position. That's one rep. 
  4. Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Dumbbell Front Raise Tips

  1. Use a lightweight to start. You can increase the weight as you get comfortable.
  2. Keep your abdominal muscles pulled in, and avoid swinging the weights as you raise and lower them.
  3. Don't arch your back as you lift the weights. Instead, keep your spine in a neutral position.
  4. To make this exercise more challenging, try lifting one dumbbell at a time.
