OVERHEAD PLATE RAISE

Exercise Instructions:

  1. Take a neutral-grip on a weight plate.
  2. Stand upright, bracing your abs.
  3. Raise the plate up in an arc-like line overhead.
  4. Your front delts are the main mover until the plate progresses above shoulder level. The lower traps, an often overlooked muscle group but crucial for great posture, take over to drive the weight up overhead and back.

Muscles Worked:

Traps, shoulders, forearms.
