Why Should You do Front Plate Raise?

The exercise is very similar to Front Dumbbell Raise. However, instead of dumbbells, you lift a weight plate upwards, which loads both shoulders at the same time and you will in many cases have a narrower distance between the hands than with dumbbells.

Be careful not to hit the weight sieve in the legs in the bottom position because then the shoulders will rest. Stop just before the body and have constant tension in your shoulders.

Guide for Front Plate Raise

  • Your arms should be slightly fixed but also bent 
  • Pull back the shoulders and pull your shoulder blades together, push the chest forward
  • Only your arms should move
  • Do not swing the body back and forth or to the side
  • Do not swing the weight but pull it up slowly
  • Lower the weight in a calm and slow manner, always with tension in the muscle, you are exercising.
  • Do not let the plate hit your legs at the bottom of the movement. Your shoulders will lose tension and rest in that case. Instead, stop right before hitting them.
