    Medial Head of the Shoulder

    What is a good group of exercises that you have noticed results from?? I have been doing tons of laterals and behind the neck miltary, but I decided not to search because I wanted to see what exercises for the medial head gave you the most noticeable results. Thanks in advance.

    Cable Laterals give you a longer range of motion and they target it much better than standard laterals. Do Overhead Dumbbell Presses, Military Presses to the front, Upright Rows. All of these work, they just take time to really show the results.

    Save your reps for someone else man this one's free....

    For overall deltoid development I personally have found the best results have come from my adding 7 sets of 5 reps of Dumbbell Side Laterals to every workout. I train (in the gym) 4x weekly, I do them all 4 sessions. This has rounded out the Medial and Posterior heads of the Deltoid and given me more width as well.

    Anyways, this is what works for me, maybe it will work for you.

    Edit: I train 1-2 more days weekly at the strongman gym and do not do the Side Raises HOWEVER I do press the log each session, this may be helping add thickness to the Medial heads.

    EDIT x2: The results from the Side Laterals began after week 3!
    Had back surgery September 3, 2009. The road to recovery is FAR from over, but I like a good challenge.

    I noticed that I rarely see natural bbers with nicely developed shoulders. Definitely one of most important bodyparts for looking big in a shirt.

    Its not the medial head its the middle head, medial means something different.

    lateral raises with db or cables are your best bet.

    If you're going to be pedantic atleast be right. It's the lateral head.

    Aside from standing or seated side laterals with dumbells or machines or cables, you could also do lying side raises a la Arnold...lie on an incline bench and take a lightish dumbell and raise it until it's roughly parallel to the floor. (After that, the tension falls off greatly). Dave Draper also loved doing these. It's more of a finishing move, but it might give you an extra boost, and it's good for a change in your regular routine.

    Not bad, but as a suggestion, I'd add in another set of militaries and drop the BTN press; too much potential for rotator cuff damage and it's also overkill, IMHO. "Dumbell raises"--do you mean "front dumbell raises?" If so, drop these as well unless your front delts are really weak. I'd also add in shrugs unless you're doing them on back day. Leave the laterals and bent laterals as they are, and see what happens.

    Just my ideas, here...

    I don't know why you think you need two exercises per head; think it's overkill. If, however, you want an extra for the lateral head, what I'd do is start with the military, then do dumbell laterals, then bent over laterals, and shrugs (or stick those on back day). For a burnout set, try the lying laterals I mentioned in my previous post. Do this workout three times i.e. once a week, if that's your schedule, then on the fourth shoulder workout, start with laterals and bent laterals first, then militaries and shrugs. It will give you a different feel to your delts.
