Single-dumbbell front 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 address muscular imbalances between shoulders. This movement 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.


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