basically i just need an effective lateral deltoid exercise that does not work the anterior delts



use the db raises then as the synergist is rear delts plus others but not including ant delts

That's how I do them. Also try tipping your thumbs down slightly as you raise the dumbbells ... as if pouring water from a pitcher.

With a slight bend in the elbows I mean.

Thumbs pointing down as Matt said, slight forward lean, and raise them not completely straight to the side but a little bit behind your body. This takes the anterior delts out of it.

Doesn't the Military Press work the lateral delts?

I've heard that it primarly works the anterior delts, but if you use a different grip, it will target the lateral detls more... any info on this anyone?

Thanks

Supposedly a wider grip targets lateral delts a little more since it brings the elbows farther out to the sides.

I was kist talking to Charlie about this in the upright row thread. Militaries are primarily anterior delts as the prime movers, especially with the old official grip width of the then contested clean and press. However, presses behind nek call in the "side" delts, actually the whole shoulder girdle to include the upper back. Go slow with this one, it takes a lot of flexibility, and if you have impingements, fugget it. A much better option would be to take 2 DB's place the elbows out wide (90 degree to the body) and use a palms facing grip. This is a much more natural movement, and is the counterpart to the press behind neck.

For the side delts, I've decided it's safer to just stick to lateral raises.

However, since I do not have any DB's, I'm wonderinf if it would be safe to just lift with barbell plates instead, say 25 lbs each side, or 45 lbs. I will grip the plates by gripping via the whole in the middle of the plate.

Would this put any bad strain on my wrists or fingers? And for just in case if I drop a plate, I'll have a cushion underneath.
