Beginning

Beginning Lying Front Raise

1. Reach down and use a neutral or pronated grip on each dumbbell. Inhale and raise your arms vertically with your elbows slightly bent.

2. Exhale and slowly lower the dumbbells back to the beginning position once the arms are parallel to the floor.

Movement

Lying Front Raise Movement

1. Sit on the stability ball, and slowly lie back and slide your feet forward until only your upper back and head are resting on the ball. Your feet should be resting flat on the floor, shoulder-width apart with your knees bent at ninety degrees. Your head, shoulders, hips, and knees should be in a straight line. You'll have to tighten your abdominals and lower back to hold your body in place, and your legs will be tensed to help hold your body in line as well.

2. Have your partner pass you the handles of the tubing. Hold one handle in each hand with your arms fully extended at your sides. Your palms should be facing the ground.

3. Your partner will hold the center point of the tubing and move back until there's a light tension.

4. Tighten your abdominals and raise your arms up in an arc until they are directly over your head. Your arms should remain extended throughout, and at the end of the motion, your palms will be facing the ceiling.

5. Slowly lower your arms with control until they reach the original position at your sides, rest and repeat the exercise until you've completed all your repetitions.

6. Make sure that you don't arch your back or drop your hips at any point during the exercise. Only your shoulders should be moving during this exercise.
