    on my push days i dont do front raises, i only do them on my 4 day week when im doing shoulders and traps only. and then i do them as a SS with lat raises.

    On push days there is more than enough benching going on.

    Pronated.

    I also rotate my shoulders inward and focus on raising with the outer part of the arm to really help avoid using bicep.

    I do them normal grip but light and as a warm up before benching.

    Other pressing exercises stimulate the front delt more than enough. If you’re not already doing so, use that time to focus more on the rear delt.
    Not speaking for the guys here, but I notice people typically neglect the rear delt because they can’t see them.

    I started to do the old arnold front raises. I think I like these the best.

    I also second the pressing movement hitting the front delt. but, if you got front delts like mine, then you have to do a little extra. mine will not frickin grow!!!!

    Rear delts are just so much harder to get much growth out of.

    Pronated always but shifted to neutral from past 2 months. Will be sticking with it.

    Yeah presses hit the front delt but for my my other muscles tire out before my front felts do. So adding in front delt isolation for me after my pressing has actually made a nice little change in the growth of my delts
    but yes obviously the bulk of shoulders will be compound lifts
