Cable Front Raise Alternatives
Next, I will show you some alternative exercises you can rotate into your shoulder workouts instead of the cable variations.
Barbell Front Raise
The barbell front raise is a classic shoulder exercise that effectively works the anterior deltoid in the contracted position. This means you will feel it most at the top of the movement.
Also, depending on your preferences, you can perform the barbell front raise using an overhand or underhand grip.
Dumbbell Front Raise
A dumbbell front raise involves holding a weight in each hand, allowing for a greater range of motion at the bottom of the exercise. In addition, dumbbells enable you to perform the exercise with both arms or alternating arms.
Plate Front Raise
Lastly, the plate front raise is a variation where hold either side of a weight plate while lifting it straight in front of you. The weight plate provides a unique type of resistance, although the range of motion is even shorter than that of the barbell.
