    Any overhead pressing movement.

    DOn't neglect your medial and posterior heads though.

    THe anterior head gets hit enough from chest day, and your overhead pressing, its the very reason why individuals have overdeveloped anterior heads that absolutly dominate the rest of the shoulder girdle, whcih can/will lead to injury.
    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and hear all kinds of talk, get told that you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds. ~Henry Rollins

    for building I would agree with above posts, dumbell military press.

    for shaping front delts, I found the best exercise is doing side lateral raises while sitting at approx 60 degrees on an incline bench.

    shaping/defining. Presses, whether shoulder or chest are mass building exercises, lateral raises and dumbell flys which are different movements done with less weight are more defining and shaping exercises. IMO these exercises are the ones that build muscle striations

    DB presses and bench press are the prime exercises for delts. But like someone mentiones if you do not work on middle and posterior delts you will not get the full effect.

    Any pressing movements will build front delts

    But for direct isolation use dumbell or cable front lateral raises.
