    theres basically only one main pressing movement with alterations with barbells or dumbells....for lagging shoulders, just mix it up, stick with 1 pressing movement per workout but alternate dumbells and barbells, and add upright barbell rows (if u havent already), side and lateral dumbell raises, seated side dumbell raises....these are all good exercises, personally i stick to upright barbell rows, and barbell shoulder press as my foundation shoulder exercises...try them out, see how it goes.....

    Agreed.. If you want roundness, its all about the lateral head of the delts, I do 3 sets, then 2 sets of shou, press. Leaning over with one arm and raising with the other really stresses the lateral head I love em…

    one way to do it would be to make heavy (4-6 reps) overhead presses, upright rows, and dead's your priority for a couple o' months and try to gain strength.

    then when you get stronger you can start adding raises back in to shape them up. i feel the most important aspect of delt training is to "feel" the head you're trying to work.

    for me personally i feel like (since my front delt gets too big too easily) what works best for me is to start with side lateral with perfect form (traps low and not helping, establish the feeling of working that head), and alternate between those and heavier ones with looser form. then (ignoring front lat. raises completely) do bent over lateral raises with the same principal, then when they are pre-exhausted, move on to military and upright rows. this gives me a pump so painful i feel like my skin is going to rip.
