Seated Dumbbell Front Raise Overview

Dumbbell front raises are an excellent exercise for strengthening your arms and enhancing posture. The anterior deltoid muscles at the front of the shoulders are the objective of this exercise. Strong shoulders are necessary for proper posture, as we all know.

The rotator cuff muscles, which are in charge of supporting the shoulder joint, are strengthened due to the dumbbell front raise. By stretching your chest and front of the shoulders, this exercise can also help you increase your range of motion and avoid injuries.

How to Do It?

  • Start by sitting on a bench with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a dumbbell in each hand at arm's distance in front of you with your palms facing your thighs.
  • Slowly raise the dumbbells to your shoulder height. Hold the dumbbells approximately 4 inches away from your body.
  • Pause for a few seconds when you reach the top before lowering them back down to the initial position. That's one rep.
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Seated Dumbbell Front Raise Tips

  • Start from lightweights. You can increase your weight as you get comfortable.
  • Keep your abdominal muscles pulled in, and don’t swing the weights as you raise and lower them.
  • Avoid arching your back as you lift the weights. Instead, keep your spine in a neutral position.

Healthier and Happier Life is One Step Away.
