1. Alternating DB Seated Shoulder Press /DB Front Raise 

  •  4 x 5-6 (alternating) x 5-6 (both)
  •  4 x 8-10

NOTE: The (SKI) Fly, your arms go behind just like if you had ski poles. Keep your pinky up. The Wide Grip Pulldown, to hit more of your rear dents and upper traps, you are going to lean back slightly at an angle and pull the bar towards your shoulders/chin area, instead of down if you were targeting lats.
