Front Dumbbell Raise Using Towel

The towel dumbbell front raise is a variation of the dumbbell front raise that involves hanging a dumbbell from a towel held in the hands. It could also be performed with a kettlebell or weight plate. 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. More difficult than a standard dumbbell front raise, allowing greater challenge with less weight
  3. Swinging weight provides additional stabilization challenge to core and upper back
