How To Perform Exercise

The barbell front raise and pullover exercise is a combination exercise that works the chest, shoulder and arm muscles.

Steps :

1.) Start off lying on a flat bench, grabbing a barbell using a medium grip and placing the bar on your upper thighs while keeping your arms locked straight.

2.) Slowly raise your arms up and over, in an arc motion, behind your head (as if you were performing a reverse pullover).

3.) Hold this position for a count, feeling a stretch in your muscles, and return back to the starting position on your thighs.
