Barbell front raise

The barbell front raise is an upper-body isolation exercise that targets the shoulders. It is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps or higher, as part of the shoulder-focused part of any workout.


  1. Adds size to the anterior deltoids
  2. Stronger, healthier front deltoids lend themselves to better pressing movements
  3. Can alter grip width based on shoulder comfort
