Barbell Front Raises
The barbell front raise is a great exercise to tone your shoulders. Remember to not swing back your body in order to raise the weight. Lower the weight if you find yourself doing this. You can also stand with your back against a wall to maintain proper form. Stand tall with feet shoulder-width apart.
Step 1: Grab a barbell and stand up straight. The barbell should be in front of your thighs with your hands facing down. Hands should be shoulder-width apart. This is the starting position.
Step 2: While keeping your torso stationary, lift the barbell to the front. Your elbows should be slightly bent. Lift the barbell up until your arms are slightly above the level where they would be parallel to the floor. Exhale as you do so, and pause for a second when you get to the top.
Step 3: Lower the barbell back to the starting position, inhaling as you do so.
Step 4: Complete 3 to 4 sets of 12 to 15 repetitions.
