Basic Muscles Explanation
The anterior deltoid covers the frontal part of the shoulder and is the main muscle involved in the frontal raises of the arms. It receives help from the medial deltoid and from the scapula elevator. On the other hand, the quads are involved by helping in the first pull from the lowest position.
Muscles & Joint Actions
In the shoulder flexion, arms move forward and up, this movement takes the arms from close to body to separated from it. In the deltoid region, the scapula moves forward and to the front. As the weight approaches the shoulder line, the anterior deltoids is fully activated.The knee extensors extend the legs giving the starting lift from below.
This exercise is important for athletes as it developes the frontal and middle part of the shoulder. The twisting mobility of the shoulder articulation is crucial in sports where arms move forward and up, like gymnastic sports, baseball, basketball, volleybal and raquet sports.These movements normally are executed with a complete range of mobility and against a resistance like a ball or similar.
