Muscle Group: Shoulders/Rotator Cuff
This is a rotator cuff exercise. This movement strengthens the external rotation of your rotator cuff and increases your front deltoids. You can use a stick first to get the form down before adding any weight.
Do not use a lot of weight during this movement. Stand and get a hold of a barbell – hands a bit wider than shoulder width. Raise the weight up in a front raise motion until your arms are parallel with the floor. This is the starting position.
From here, keeping your elbows and upper arms as still as possible, rotate the barbell upwards till it just about touches your forehead. Now lower to the starting position.
