Major Muscles Worked:


Set Up:

  1. Stand with your feet closer than hip width apart. Feet should be parallel to each other.
  2. Hold one dumbbell in each hand by your sides.
  3. Chest is up, shoulders are back.

The Movement:

  1. With your palms facing the front of your thighs, slightly bend your elbows.
    Relax your shoulders down away from your ears.
  2. Keeping the bend in your arms the same, lift your arms in front of you.
    Keep your torso stationary – try not to rock back. If you are, lighten your weight.
  3. Pause at the top of the motion.
  4. Lower the weights with control.

Specific Cues:

  • If your torso is moving a lot, you may need lighter weights.
  • You may want to stagger your feet if you’re finding too much pressure in your back.

Front Raise with Bands Variation

  • Step in the middle of your band
    depending on the resistance of your band, you can use one foot to anchor the band, or both.
