There are many deltoid exercises that you can do with dumbbells.
Front raises, lateral raises, reverse flyes and the military press are examples of shoulder exercises with dumbbells.
The deltoid is one muscle that has three sections: front (anterior), side (middle), and back (posterior). Front raises emphasize the anterior deltoid.
Below are the instructions for front raises.
Starting Position: Simply begin by standing with dumbbells in your hands with the back of your hands facing forwards.
Form: Exhale and lift your arms to the front of your body. Only lift to about 90 degrees. Hold briefly at the top and then slowly return to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: It is very easy to use momentum and move out of good posture during the exercise.
Engage your abdominal muscles and keep your lower back stable as you lift towards the front.
These are all isolation dumbbell exercises that focus on the three parts of the shoulder.
