The Deltoid Raise is an isolation exercise that concentrates on the shoulder flexion. It primarily works the anterior deltoid, with assistance from the serratus anterior, biceps and clavicular portions of the pectorals. There are a variety of ways to perform a Deltoid Raise. Our example is with the low pulley of a G6B Home Gym.
START by attaching a cable handle or cable strap to the low pulley cable. Grab the handle with your non-dominant hand and stand sideways to the machine so that your dominant side is towards the weight stack. Hold the handle near your dominant-side hip, with your elbow slightly bent. You may have to step away from the machine a few steps to ensure that the weight stack is engaged throughout the entire range-of-motion.
Raise the handle up and across your body until your arm is parralel to the floor and the cable is crossing your body. (You will figure out the best position by trial and error - you may get a better feel for the exercise by standing closer to or farther from the weight stack or by raising your arm at a higher angle.)
Pause, then slowly return to the starting position. Finish the set with that arm and then switch and repeat with your other arm.
Variations of this exercise include:
