How to Do Barbell Front Raises

  1. Hold a barbell in straight arms, in front of your body.
  2. With control, lift the barbell forward with straight arms, until the bar is at shoulder height.
  3. 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.
