Front Raise

Front Raise

What muscles do Front Raise work?

The front raise primarily works the anterior (front) deltoid muscle, as well as the pectoralis major (chest) and the biceps. It can also engage the traps (trapezius) and the serratus anterior to a lesser extent.

How do you do a Front Raise?

To perform a front raise exercise:

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a AguaForce Weight from each side, with your palms facing in.
  • Keep your shoulders relaxed and your core engaged.
  • Lift AguaForce Weight forward, keeping your arms straight and your palms facing down, until they are level with your shoulders.
  • Pause briefly at the top, then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

It's important to use a weight that is appropriate for your strength level and to keep your movements smooth and controlled, avoiding any swinging or momentum. Keep your neck and spine in a neutral position, avoiding any excessive arching or rounding of the back.
