Begin by sitting up straight in the chair with your feet flat on the floor and shoulder width apart. Contract your abdominals for trunk stability. Hold the weights at your side with your palms facing behind you. Slowly raise the weights straight out in front of you until they reach shoulder height. When bringing them back down to starting position, lower them in a slow and controlled manner, do not let the weights dropped back down. Repeat this process 8-12 times for 3 sets. The front raise exercise can be done with both arms simultaneously or by alternating the arms.
