best way to do front raises

the front delts require a good stretch to really work the fibers.  The best way is to do the bottom portion of a dumbell overhead or incline press.  A machine can also be used if you adjust the seat up high so you get an extreme stretch on the front delts.  Using dumbells, position them palms parallel also called a hammer grip. Bring the dumbells down as low as possible, you want the most extreme stretch.  Do not use heavy weights.  This is an isolation movement to develop the front delt maximally which will greatly aid any pressing movements you do. Do not extend the arms ,   only move the weight using the front delts, the elbows will be pointing down at the beginning, the straight out at the conclusion.  This is a partial movement.  like doing a quarter of a full range rep.   This is the best I can describe it.  It flat out works well.
