Here is a variation on how to work your shoulders, here we are in frontal elevation. It is the former deltoid which is the most solicited on this exercise.

Observe your feelings about this movement, which can sometimes be painful for people with early tendonitis. If you feel any pain, then go back to side elevation and adjust the weights until the pain subsides.

For this exercise you can do it unilaterally that is to say your 8 to 12 repetitions on the same shoulder then change and continue your training like that or act alternately.

Refer to the following guidelines for standing front delt with dumbbell

  • 1. Have a dumbbell in each hand and put yourself in position:
  • a) The feet are at the width of the pelvis or shoulders according to your comfort.
  • b) The knees are slightly bent to relieve the back.
  • c) The arms are stretched along the body and your shoulders are relaxed.
  • 2. Hold the dumbbells overhand (palms of hands down) and mount the dumbbells one by one slightly higher from your shoulder and on the same vertical axis
  • 3. Slowly return to the starting position by lowering your arm.
  • 4. Continue your series by repeating the movement

Follow our tips, advice and techniques for standing front delt with dumbbell

  • 1. Never pull with your back. Your body stays as still as possible, only your arms go up.
  • 2. Keep a slight bend in your elbows.
  • 3. Look in front of you and not the ground to stay aligned at the cervical level
  • 4. Focus on quality with a slower but more precise movement.
  • 5. It's important to remember the descent, the more control you have on the eccentric phase (descent) the more you will optimize your muscles.
