Dumbbell Front Raises

Dumbbell Front Raises

Primary muscle group(s): Shoulders

Secondary: Abs

Stand straight holding a dumbbell in each hand with an overhand grip.
Hold the dumbbells in in front of your thighs with your palms facing your thighs.
Keep your arms fully extended. This is the start position.
Raise the left dumbbell out and upwards, while keeping a slight bend in your elbow.
Your palms must always face down for this exercise.
Continue raising the dumbbell until your arm is a little above parallel to the floor.
Exhale as you are raising the dumbbell.
Pause for a count of one.
Inhale and slowly lower the dumbbell to the start position.
As you lower the left dumbbell, begin to lift the right dumbbell, duplicating the movement.
When both dumbbells have been raised and lowered in a cycle, that is one repetition.

Note: This exercise can be performed using both arms at the same time and also by substituting a barbell for the two dumbbells.
