Front Raise w/ Tube and Dumbbells 


  1. Begin by looping light tubing under step to secure it (or you can sit on a chair and secure tube under feet) and wrap ends of tubing around light dumbbells. 
  2. Start the move by sitting down and holding tube/weights down at the sides, palms facing you.
  3. Keeping elbows slightly bent, pull the arms straight up in front of you to shoulder level until palms face the floor.
  4. Lower and repeat.  
  5. Adjust the tension of the tube as needed to add challenge while still keeping good form.


  • Keep the tubing light--you want to add challenge without compromising form.
  • Avoid this move if you have any shoulder problems or feel pain in the shoulders (or anywhere else).
  • If you don't feel safe and in control, choose one type of resistance to use.
