Forward Raise – Dumbbell

  • HOW: Start in a standing position holding weights or objects in each hand. Begin the exercise by performing a front raise. Lift your arms directly in front of you to at least shoulder height, hold for a moment, then slowly lower down and repeat.
  • FEEL: This should feel like a shoulder workout, specifically your anterior deltoids. Your biceps and forearms will be working as well.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not excessively bend your elbows, try to keep the rest of your body straight. Do not use momentum to lift and lower the band, stay strong and packed with your shoulder blades up and back. Stay strong through your wrists and keep them aligned with your forearms.
