Alternating dumbbell front raise

The alternating dumbbell front raise is a single-joint exercise targeting the shoulder muscles, particularly the front or anterior deltoids. Performing the movement one shoulder at a time gives a momentary rest to each side while the other is working, potentially allowing you to do more reps during each set. It is usually performed for moderate to high reps, at least 8-12 reps per set, as part of an upper-body or shoulder-focused workout.

Benefits

  1. Strengthens and develops the front (anterior) deltoids
  2. Great burnout movement on shoulder day
  3. Can be performed seated or standing
