    Front raises good for adding mass??

    As of now I am doing DB presses, side lat raises and rear lat raises for my shoulders, but was wondering if I should throw in some front raises as well. I heard somone say they weren't that great

    I've always developed large anterior deltoids from benching and shoulder pressing. Most people lack in medial and posterior development. I would leave the front raises out and conserve your energy the medial and posterior delts.

    Front raises are very important imo. I hit them heavy every shoulder workout. until 45's get too light, i had great success grabbing a plate (25/35/45, whatever you can handle) and grab both ends and do front raises like that, and superset it with super slow ezbar front raises (with no weight on it). i get commented on my shoulders most of all.
