How to Do Barbell Front Raises

  • Hold a barbell in straight arms, in front of your body.
  • With control, lift the barbell forward with straight arms, until the bar is at shoulder height.
  • Reverse the movement and lower the bar with control.


This is an exercise where it is easy to pick a weight that is too heavy. Rather err on the lighter side, and strive for a strict form where you focus on getting a good contact with your delts.
