This technique works great for anyone who is trying to get back into shape after a health related injury or the loss of a loved one. Simply take a dumbbell and put it on your shoulders and keep the weight steady for 10 or 15 repetitions or until you feel a gentle pull on the bicep.
It’s all about balance. You want to keep your weight low as you get into your squat position, but your arms should be straight in your hands as you get into the back squat. The idea is to keep your body weight low and the tension high while you’re taking a lot of pressure off your shoulders and wrists.
Here’s a video of someone doing it, from the video above. I feel like you’re supposed to feel a pull on your bicep.
I’m not sure when the idea of dumbbell front raises came up, but theres a video of a guy doing it, probably over 10 years ago. I think I liked it, but it still seems kind of weird to me.
I think what makes dumbbell front raises so effective is that they force the user to focus on the task at hand, rather than the body parts that need to be held. When I am doing other things, like sitting or standing, I focus on the part of my body that I want to be doing that, and not the parts of my body that need to be holding me up. I think its a good idea to focus on the things you want to get done.
The chair I am talking about is a dumbbell front raise, where the user is asked to hold their weights in a single position. This causes the user to concentrate on the weight in their hands, and not the body parts that need to be holding them up. This is especially helpful when doing squats or bench presses.
I also try to focus on the things I am doing wrong, the things I need to change. The more I focus on my mistakes, the less room I have for improvement. This is an easy way to see what you are doing wrong, and what you need to change.
I’m not a big fan of the front raise because I feel like I am “shoving” my weight towards my chest when I should be moving my front towards the ground. Also, I get a hard time with it. It’s easy to get into a headspace where you are concentrating on “doing it wrong” and not “doing it right.” The truth is that it’s more difficult to do correctly.
I think people need to be challenged to stop focusing on their weaknesses in order to focus on their strengths. It takes a lot of courage to put your thoughts out there and take criticism. It takes a lot of courage to look at your weaknesses, identify what you are doing wrong, and fix it. It takes a lot of courage to turn those weaknesses into strengths.
That’s why I try to bring the whole topic of self-awareness into every class I teach. I want my students to realize that they are in control of their own life. They can make changes to their lives in the way that they want and they have the power to make those changes. They don’t have to accept the way things are or the way things are supposed to be.
