Front Dumbbell Raise
Dumbbell RaiseThe dumbbell front raise is another great isolation movement for your shoulders. Here's how you should do it:

Step 1: Stand straight with a dumbbell in each hand. Keep the dumbbells in front of your thighs with the palms facing inwards. This is your starting position.

Step 2: Keeping your torso stationary, raise the right dumbbell with a slight bend in the elbow. Continue till your arms are parallel to the floor. Pause for a second at the top and return to your starting position.
