How to Do Dumbbell Front Raises

  • Hold a pair of dumbbells in straight arms, in front of your body.
  • With control, lift the dumbbells forward with straight arms, until the dumbbells are at shoulder height.
  • Reverse the movement and lower the dumbbells 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 good contact with your delts.
