    Outer (Lateral) deltoid

    My Anterior and Posterior Delts (front and back of shoulder) are pretty big, but I can't seem to get my Lateral Delt (the outer part of my shoulder) to blow up like the rest of it. I am looking for a wider look from my shoulders from a front view. Any help with certain exercises and training? I usually start with shoulder presses, should I change and start with lateral raises first? Thanks.

    You certanly could prioritaze if something is lagging.
    Although all the presses will somewhat hit the medial head,there is no harm in doing some direct work.
    Try lateral raises-seated,standing,cable,dumbell,higher reps,dropsets...
    Also upright row with wider grip might be a good idea.

    and a place where 99% of 21 year olds have bad back and knees.

    I like to do my lat raises starting from the smallest dumbells and working my way up the dumbell rack untill i reach my max. then work my way back down. That's 1 set! Do 3 of these sets and you'll certainly hit them hard!

    What I tend to do is also hit the front and rears in between sets. good shoulders day!

    Medial delts are genetically my strong point, where as the rear delts aren't... Sucks.

    Anyways, I love lateral raises since they are very simplistic and straight to the point for the medial delt head... Try doing more lateral raises and variations of it. From cable crossover to dumbbells.
