How to Train Your Anterior Deltoid
By Shane Piccolo, Trainer at Lakeview Health Wellness Center
The Anterior Deltoid is the front third of your shoulder originating along the lateral third of the clavicle and inserting on the deltoid tuberosity of your humerus. Common actions of this muscle are abduction, flexion, and internal rotation. Simply put, this muscle raises your arm in front of your body, and turns your shoulders in. Pay attention to these motions, as you do them every day in your daily life. This muscle also assists in exercises that word your chest. Overuse of the anterior deltoid can cause injured shoulders, especially if exercises are done inappropriately. Follow up with the video below.
