Pulley Power Cable Front Raise

Pulley Power Cable Front Raise

Versatility. Convenience. Constant tension on each rep of every set. What’s not to love about the ubiquitous cable-crossover station? Here is a unique pulley exercise – one you are properly not doing – to make you love this do-it-all machine even more.

Target: anterior deltoids.

  • Secure a straight bar attachment to the lowest pulley setting on one side of a cable-crossover station.
  • Stand a foot or so in front of the cable stack, facing away from it. Grasp the ends of the bar with the cable running between your legs, and start with your arms extended, hands in front of your thighs and knees slightly bent.
  • With only a slight bend in the elbows, contract your front delts to raise the bar straight up in front of you until it is at shoulder level. Slowly lower back to the start position without letting the weight rest on the stack. Repeat for reps.
