February’s Move of the Month
Looking for a great shoulder move? Trainer James is here to walk you through the Cable Front Raise, our February Move of the Month, so you can be sure you’re getting the most out of this exercise and performing it safely.
Why We Love It
So what makes this a great exercise? “The Cable Front Raise forces you to keep your core tight while working on your front delts,” Trainer James explained, and Trainer Jesse agrees. “It’s also a great way to get some variety in your workout if you’re typically using dumbbells. You can also mix it up and use different handles.”
How To: Cable Front Raise
He recommends starting by selecting an appropriate weight on the low pulley machine. Grasp the cable attachment, running the cable between your legs, and face away from the pulley. Hold the hand cable attachment in front of your thighs at arms’ length, with your palms facing your thighs. This is starting position. Keep your torso stationary and raise your arms to the front with a slight bend on the elbows and your palms facing down. Continue until your arms are slightly above parallel to the floor. Pause for a moment at the top. As you inhale, lower your arms slowly and repeat.
