How to do Seated Dumbbell Front Raise

Start the exercise by assuming a seated position on a chair and holding a pair of dumbbells straight down by your sides. Grab the dumbbells using either a hammer (neutral) grip or pronated grip. Lift the weights in a semi-circular manner in front of you until the arms are slightly above the parallel. While the standard form involves lifting two dumbbells with both hands, you can perform the exercise by raising one arm at a time or by lifting the weights with the alternating arm.
