Single Dumbbell Raise

The single-dumbbell front raise is an isolation movement that targets the shoulders. In particular, it focuses on the anterior or front head of the deltoid muscles. By performing it with one dumbbell at a time, you can focus on each shoulder muscle independently and try to fix development imbalances between shoulders.


  1. Strengthens and develops the front (anterior) deltoids, even with light weights
  2. Allows you to focus on each shoulder independently
  3. Adds variety to your shoulder training
