How to Do Dumbbell Front Raises

  1. Hold a pair of dumbbells in straight arms, in front of your hip.
  2. With control, lift the dumbbells forward with straight arms, until the dumbbells are at shoulder height.
  3. 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.
