This video will guide you through the front raise exercise. This exercise works your shoulder and back muscles and can be used during your main workout or as part of a circuits session. This is a standing exercise for which you’ll need a set of dumbbells.
- To pick the weights up safely remember to bend your knees and keep your back straight.
- Try to keep your upper body as still as possible when lifting, as allowing your torso to rock back and forth will mean you are not focusing the exercise on the correct muscles
- As you perform each lift, concentrate on keeping your elbows in the locked position, your back straight and head up and don’t allow your torso to rock. Combining these technique tips will ensure you are performing the exercise at maximum efficiency and targeting exactly the right muscles.
