Cable Single Arm Neutral Grip Front Raise

Cable Single Arm Neutral Grip Front Raise

The Cable Single Arm Neutral Grip Front Raise is an effective exercise that targets the anterior deltoid muscle, helping to strengthen and tone the front of your shoulders. This exercise is performed using a cable machine, which offers a constant tension throughout the entire range of motion. By using a neutral grip (palms facing each other) instead of a traditional overhand grip, you engage your shoulder muscles in a slightly different way, providing a unique challenge to your workout routine. This variation can also help to reduce strain on the wrists and elbows, making it a suitable option for those with joint issues. This exercise primarily involves raising one arm at a time in front of your body to shoulder level while keeping a slight bend in the elbow. It is important to maintain a neutral spine and engage your core for stability throughout the exercise. Performing the Cable Single Arm Neutral Grip Front Raise consistently can enhance your shoulder strength and mobility, contributing to better overall upper body strength. Remember to adjust the weight on the cable machine according to your fitness level and gradually increase it as you become stronger. To ensure proper form and maximize the benefits of this exercise, it is always recommended to seek guidance from a fitness professional. So grab that cable handle, keep your core tight, and raise those arms to sculpt those strong and shapely shoulders!


  • Stand facing the cable machine with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Grab the handle with an overhand grip, with your palm facing your body.
  • Ensure your arm is fully extended and the cable is slightly tensioned.
  • Engage your core and keep your back straight throughout the exercise.
  • Exhale and slowly lift the cable by raising your arm in front of you, maintaining a neutral grip.
  • Continue lifting until your arm is parallel to the floor or slightly higher.
  • Pause for a moment, squeezing your shoulder muscles at the top of the movement.
  • Inhale and slowly lower the cable back to the starting position, maintaining control and tension.
  • Repeat the exercise for the desired number of repetitions.
  • Switch arms and repeat the movement on the opposite side.
