Front Dumbbell Raises really bring out the front head of your deltoid. These can be done in a seated or standing position. Be aware that your front delts get a lot of work during pressing movements so use these sparingly.

Sit or stand holding a dumbbell in each hand at arm’s length. Raise one of the dumbbells forward and up in a full range of motion until the dumbbell is in front of you – eyeball level.

Lower the weight slowly to the starting position and immediately start lifting the other weight. Have the dumbbells pass in front of your face rather than out to the side so that you are working the front head of your deltoids directly. Being seated makes this exercise stricter than standing.
