This exercise really does target the front of the shoulder. Often men and women will neglect the shoulders which is a shame as they are so important to our upper bodies and providing a strong healthy well rounded look!
It is important to train all muscles from different angles but in my opinion it is especially important to balance out the shoulders. Should issues are very, very common. I try to train the front, middle and rear portion of my deltoids on a regular basis. We will be building out more exercises to cover the various angles.
Other Names Or Variations
Other names for this exercise may be the Arnold Press or Palms In Military Press With Dumbbell. Some people prefer to rotate their hands at the top of the lift and like all exercises there are always different ways to perform them.
As with most exercise momentum can be an issue with this exercise. Keeping the body tight and still can really help isolate and lessen the opportunity of injuring the shoulder.
Form & Safety
As always form and safety is extremely important. Injury is always possible. I have been doing movements like this for 26 years and adding weight is natural for me. Use caution and consult professionals. But keep in mind rule 2! Intensity is one of the rules I have lived by for over 26 years.

I have kept lean and athletic for over 26 years by creating a demand for calories and eating sensibly. Working muscle, growing muscle and sustaining muscle all take calories! With a sensible diet, the extra calorie demand allows me to burn off calories that might otherwise be stored as fat.
