Car driver

The car driver is a variation of the plate front raise exercise where the lifter holds a weight plate in front of them and twists it from side to side, similar to a steering wheel. It targets the muscles of the shoulders, the front or anterior deltoids in particular, but is also challenging to the core and upper-back muscles. It can provide variety in a shoulder-focused muscle-building workout or as part of an upper-body or full-body circuit.


  1. Intense shoulder burn, focusing primarily on the front or anterior deltoids
  2. Neutral grip on plate may be more shoulder-friendly than using a straight bar or dumbbells
  3. Stabilization challenge to the core and upper back
