I need to correct my form on lateral raises. Every time I do two handed laterals it hits my traps to much. Any advice or even any other exercises that hit the medial head of your delts?

If you don't have any impingement issues, you can also try Upright Rows. Some experimenting with grip width to minimize trap involvement here will be necessary.No brain, no gain.
You can't out-train bad nutrition.

i do my lateral raises one arem at a time with DB..two arms and i feel i use too much momentum and my form gets sloppy..i basically start out with my arm at a 90 degree angle with the DB right to the side of me..theni raise my arm up keeping it bent at a 90 degree angle...its the only way i feel my side delts being used
as for other exercises..the best exercise for side delts IMO is upright rows with a shoulder width gripI rep back 1k+
Vision is purpose, and when your purpose is clear so are your life choices. Vision creates faith and faith creates willpower. With faith there is no anxiety, no doubt - just absolute confidence.
There are two undeniable truths in life: failure and success. Unfortunately, everyone experiences failures before achieving any amount of success. Life is ultimately a giant trial and error test-you never really get what you want without putting up with the things that you dont
