This exercise isolates the shoulder deltoid muscles while focusing on the front of the shoulders in a controlled manner.
Grab a barbell with appropriate weight.
Stand upright with arms fully extended and the barbell in front of you with an overhand grip.
Lift the barbell while keeping your arms fully extended and bringing the barbell perpendicular to your torso, with arms about 90 degrees and barbell at shoulder level.
Slowly bring the dumbbells down to the starting position.
Once completing your set, re-rack the weights as needed or wipe down the equipment used.
Use lower weights when you begin. This is an exercise that requires lots of isolated strength to prevent swinging and tossing the weights up and down! Controlled form and movement is critical to this exercise.
With isolated exercises, this is most effective with moderate to high repetitions with controlled movements.
