    Why wont my lateral deltoids grow??

    Hey everyone, i started training with weights a few months back now. I particullarly wanted better shoulders and arms (i have been training all over though). However i have a problem my deltoids at the back and sides dont seem to grow much, i do loads of training on them but now much happens, i do rest though, i understand the concept of how important rest days are but the deltoids are the only muscles that dont seem to grow.

    This is how i train my shoulders:

    50 mins Monday: Laterals
    50 mins Tuesday: Anteriors
    50 Mins Wedsnday: Fronts

    Thanks, Please help me i'll be extreme grateful...

    If you spent 2 and 1/2 hours training shoulders a week isnt overtraining that body part inevitable?
    Also i recommend training all head of the shoulder on one day
    Since you never see the tricep split up into 3 different days or 2 bicep days lol
    Try shoulder presses, dumbell presses, lateral raises and rear raises.

    I hope you mean that the workout lasts 50 mins and you're only showing the days you work the arms out.

    You should post the exercises you do for each.

    I have the same problem. They're my one muscle that just won't seem to grow(although, my front delt has made nice gains lately). The lateral head just won't grow and has barely gotten any stronger since 5 months ago when I started lifting. My current shoulder routine is:

    DB Military press- 10 x 8 x 6 x 6
    Lateral Raises- 10 x 10 x 8
    Front Raises- 10 x 10 x 8
    Rear Delt Machine- 8 x 8 x 8

    your doing way too much for your delts, go a little easier on them, they will grow
    I was very fortunate to live in this time when bodybuilding was embraced by Hollywood, embraced by doctors, embraced by the world.
    -Joe Gold

    I say we get that embracement back!
