Palms Up, Front Shoulder Raises
Start in a standing position with good posture and your arms at your sides. Hold a light weight in each hand with your palms facing forward and keep a small bend in each elbow. Start the movement by raising your arms forward an up and stop when your hand is just below shoulder level.
This exercise is only really effective when performed very slowly and the shoulder muscles should do the majority of the work. Focus on keeping your arms as relaxed as possible and lifting from the shoulder. If it feels as though your forearm/hands are pushing the weight, you are probably using the wrong muscles.
Perform up to 15 reps of this exercise and stop if you feel any shoulder discomfort or the motion becomes jerky, especially at the top of the movement. If it’s too difficult to maintain good posture while standing, you can perform the exercise seated.
