Arnold presses engage the front delts better than other kinds of dumbbell presses because your arms start in front of you.

You don’t want to construct a split that trains chest on Mondays, shoulders on Tuesday, and triceps on Wednesdays. A number of multijoint triceps exercises, like close-grip benches, weighted dips, and the triceps dip machine, engage the front delts to some degree.
