    Incline front shoulder raises

    Anyone ever do incline dumbell front shoulder raises? What is the difference doing them like this instead of regular seated dumbell front shoulder raises? Do they work your front delts more? Do they work your synergists and stabilizers more (lateral delts, traps, etc.)?

    Anyone ever have good results doing these and do you recommend them over the regular seated dumbell front shoulder raises?

    I assume you mean when leaning back on an incline bench as when you perform an incline bench press. Do this at home now: lean back and place your arms in the start postion (arms perpedicular to the ground) slowly move them up until they are slightly above parallel. While doing it think about the ROM where gravity has the greatest effect and notice the size of that ROM. Do the same when seated straight up. Notice the ROM where gravity is having a relatively large effect is significantly smaller.

    agression, the key with incline front raises is not to swing the weight. control it from start to finish. the inlcine allows for less cheating because the exercise is performed strict.
