Best way to do side laterals

The lateral head of the delts requires more stretch at the beginning to fully activate the fibers, in fact doing the beginning portion of the movement moving only about 1/3 of a full range movement works well starting with a stretch  is the best way to increase growth in this area.    Using a cable set up, stand between the two cable pulleys , use the right hand to pull from the left pulley and the left hand to pull from the right pulley.  Crisscross the cables.   and can pull in front or behind the body.  stepping forward a bit also helps put more tension on the area.  Experiment.
