Front Plate Raise

The plate front raise is a variation of the dumbbell front raise where the lifter holds a weight plate between two hands, rather than using a dumbbell, barbell, or other weight. 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
