Hold a dumbbell in each hand with a pronation grip (palms facing back) leave arms hanging and near your hips. This is the starting position. Start movement raising one arm to the front, to the horizontal position alternating with the other arm. Lower to starting position in a controlled manner.
Basic Muscles Explanation
The anterior deltoids covers the front part of the shoulder and is the main muscle involved in the front raise of the arms. The medial deltoids and other muscles like the scapula elevator help in this movement.
Muscles & Joint Actions
In the shoulder flexion arms move towards the front and upward, taking arms from close to body to separated from body. In the deltoids, the scapula moves to the front and up. As the weight gets near the shoulder line, the anterior deltoids is fully activated.
This exercise is important for the athletes to develope the front part of the shoulder. With a neutral dumbbell grip, frontal elevations are specially effective to develope the anterior deltoid. Flexing the shoulder articulation is crucial in sports where arms have to take a frontal and elevated position, like in gymnastics sports, baseball, basketball volleyball and raquet sports. These exercises are normally executed with a complete mobility range and against a resistance like a ball.
