The Front Raise is the most popular exercise for the anterior part of the shoulder and the most frequently misused. Use a bench set to an incline to perform a stricter movement that forces the delts to work alone – without body English to swing the weight up.

How To Do It:

  1. Set an adjustable bench to a 45-degree angle and lie down with your chest against it and a barbell on the floor in front of you.
  2. Grasp the bar overhand at shoulder level, using only your delts. Don’t let your back arch.

Advantage:

Every rep is done without momentum and fully activates the front deltoid muscles.

Quick Tip:

Use the same setup for rows. Supporting your chest lets you work the lats without straining your lower back.
