Dumbbell Front Raise


Utility: Auxiliary
Mechanics: Isolated
Force: Push



Grasp dumbbells in both hands. Position dumbbells in front of upper legs with elbows straight or slightly bent.


Raise dumbbells forward and upward until upper arms are above horizontal. Lower and repeat.


Absolute height of movement may depend on range of motion. Raise should be limited to height achieved just before tightness is felt in shoulder capsule. Alternatively, height just above horizontal may be considered adequate. Elbows may be kept straight or slightly bent throughout movement. Also see Dumbbell Alternating Front Raise.
