Incline Face Foreword Front Barbell Raises hit both the front and rear delts! Remember the front delts are a weak point in many athletes ability to bench, besides looking better, you will be able to bench more if you utilize this exercise on a consistent basis.

Make sure to balance out your front delts by blasting your rear delts as well.

  1. Lie face forward on an incline bench.
  2. Grab a barbell with a shoulder width, overhand grip and allow the bar to hang straight down in front of you, which is the starting position.
  3. Using a wide range of motion and keeping your arms perfectly straight, raise the weight up until it is even with your eyes, pause and then lower under control.

Note: For variation, you can use dumbbells or alternate the dumbbell raises to target one shoulder at a time.
