For Side Laterals do most of you guys let the dumbbells go in front of you for more of a heavier set or stay at your sides and go lighter. I definatly have more power when i go to the front but i like to try to stay at my sides. what do you guys think?

Yeah, I think seated are the best way to go about doing these, it helps to keep your form strict.  But every now and then I will do them standing up and let the weight drop to the front of me.  This is to allow me to use a little more weight then when seated.  I don't do these every shoulder w\o, stick to the strict seated ones most of the time.

yep, I found that out a while ago. side laterals dont really work for mass  gain in the shoulders. so i switched it to upright rows with a wide grip. its been working so far.

I know there's really nothing really new in training idea's, just recycled old stuff that's been forgotten and somehow brought back to life from time to time but there are two current way's of doing laterial raises with some of my heavy duty training Bud's.

1) Do 8 rep's of strict LR's starting with the DB's against the thighs, raising  up in a straight line with the body (your can also do this sitting).  Hold the front of the DB's down  so the little finger is higher than the hand it's self and with a very slight bend to the elbow. Lower slowly. As soon as your done with the last rep (of this strict style) and without rest grab a pair of 10 or 20 lb heavier DB's. Start with them held in front of you, elbows bent and swing the weight up to shoulder height. Try for 6-8 reps.  This final movement is a Cheating style  but you must be sure to have complete control of the movement/weight at all times throughout the exercise. Try for 2 or 3 cycles of this exercise with a 60-90 second breaks between cycles.

2) Press a pair of DB's overhead touching together at the top. The poundage should be about 10lbs+ over what is used in your regular laterial  raise. Just lower the DB's like  a reverse, wide angle LR from the top position. Re-press the Db's overhead again and repeat the lowering portion of the laterial raise. 8-10 reps of 2-3 cycles.

In either case, make sure the shoulder girdle is totally warmed up before doing any serious delt exercise. You can also do anyone of these exercises one arm at a time. Good Luck.

Ever since i started doing side raises with high reps first in my delt workouts 4x15  in dropset fashion wait 90 seconds and repeat then burnout with the 10lb dbs, my delts have improved alot. My one friend asked if i was shooting winstrol in them? Thats about 140 reps in 5-7 minutes.

I use to be the same way, I didn't feel that I got much from them.  But recently I have noticed my traps really lagging behind and have again incorporated them in regularly.  I spent a few weeks playing with my grip and form till I found the combo that seemed to work best.  Before I would do them raising the bar to the bottom of my neck, now I've found that bringing the bar all the way up to the top of my chin gets a much better contraction.  I'm getting to where I really like these.
