How to perform
Incline Front Raise - Starting position
Incline Front Raise - Muscle Under Tension
Pronated Grip or Overhand Grip
Set up & Starting position (seated, or standing (leaning against a wall))
Set the incline of the bench at about 45-60 degrees. Grab a weight in each hand, sit on the bench and and lean flat against the backrest. Let your arms hang down your sides, so that they are slightly behind your torso. You should feel a stretch in your front deltoids.
Raise weight forward and upward until upper arms are slightly above horizontal.
Isometric hold (optional) - Hold for a second at the top of the movement.
Slowly lower down to the starting position and repeat.
The Incline Front Raise mostly focuses on the front deltoid, however with a pronated grip (hands above) and raising the arms a little more to the sides (in a Y-shape), the medial (or lateral) deltoid will also be involved.
