I prefer standard.

Actually i have been doing front raises with a 45lb (20kg) plate. An exercise Charles Glass recommends. I just do a couple of sets after presses. Really hits the anterior head.

the hammer style is more for peple that have shoulder issues. you should play with the grips to see which one feels the best for you

I do  the standard or with a barbell.

there are 101 ways to do front raise. two arm, one arm, plate , turning the db's and etc

thumbs up is for front delt,

palm down is for a combo of front delt/side delt.

i prefer palm down because i dont think you really need to build your front delts so much.

a couple sets of a press is all i usually do for front delts....    but i do palm down raises, upright rows, side laterals, a few of my own invnetion movements fo rear delts

I used to do only palms down. But now performing the movement start in hammer position and ends palms down.

both are basically a waste of time, if your doing heavy pressing movements.

i do hammer grip to the front..if i use a standard grip my tendons roll over and pop. I use a standard grip on teh side laterals though. Both have been great additions to my training and have really put on alot of size for me. I don't do alot of pressing movements for my shoulders because of all the actual benching I do to begin with so laterals are a great addition.
