Frontal Raise

  1. Hold one dumbbell in each hand, palms facing thighs, arms straight down in front of you.
  2. Stand tall with good posture; knees slightly bent, abs tight, chest up.
  3. Without rocking the body or using momentum, lift the dumbbells up to shoulder height, no higher, and slowly lower back to start.
  4. You can lift both dumbbells at once, or alternate one at a time, although lifting both at once will challenge the core muscles more than a unilateral lift.

Variation: This exercise can also be performed using elastic tubing, with the tubing anchored at the bottom of a door. Face away from the door when you lift tubing handles and keep body still and abs tight as you perform exercise.
