Target Muscle Group: Shoulders

Barbell Front Raise Overview

The barbell front lift is a shoulder exercise that targets the front deltoids. The barbell can be used to overload muscles in a way that dumbbells are not.

The front deltoid plays a role in many pressing movements. Strengthening this muscle group can help you to lift heavier weights.

Larger front deltoids can give the appearance of more shoulders and a wider upper body.

How to Do it

  1. Choose the weight you want and load it onto a handlebar.
  2. Take a stance at your shoulder width and grip the bar with a pronated grip.
  3. Breathe in deeply, brace your abdominals, and lift the arms vertically, keeping the elbows almost locked out.
  4. Slowly lower the bar until your arms are parallel to the floor.
  5.  Continue repeating until you reach the desired number.

Exercise Tips

  1. Do not lean back while you raise your arms. Keep the motion under control. Don't rely upon momentum.
  2.  Do not bounce at the top; let your shoulders flex, and then slowly lower.
