Cable Shoulder Flexion with Bar — Standing

[Elite_video_player id=”379″]

Muscle Groups
  • Shoulders
  • Deltoid strength (emphasis: front head)


The cable shoulder flexion (raise) performed with a bar builds strong shoulders. The cable provides constant resistance throughout the exercises range-of-motion. For maximum development and results it’s best to lower the weight slowly. Variations include performing single arm shoulder raises and alternating your grip (supination, pronation and neutral).


  • Standing with your back to a cable column, hold an attached bar in front of your thighs.
  • Keeping your arms straight, lift the bar out in front of you.
  • Stop at shoulder height and return the bar to the start position.


  • Shrugging the shoulders excessively
  • Hunching forward
  • Leaning back
