Side raises,

Hiya guys im just wondering is there any way to hit the medial delts other than side raises. when ever i preform these i feel that my traps are being worked.
 
I always concentrate the main part of my shoulder work on heavy compounds, but like to throw in a few isolation sets
 
 
thanks for any replys

    If you find it's hitting your traps,you could be shrugging when you lift......Try to concentrate on pushing your shoulders towards the floor(away from your ears)....

     Or-One arm leaning laterals will isolate your delts and the angle you lean at should take the traps out of the equation.

    Upright rows, the higher you pull the more your traps are engaged so use a medium grip and  keep your elbows lower than your ears during the exercise.

    upright rows are for the traps!!!
     
    Seated lateral raise to parrallel will isolate the lateral deltoid.

    correct!
    however, to the o.p.
    whats so wrong about trainig your traps alongside lateral
    deltoids?
    are you afraid of getting some muscle in that area?

    yes i know they are for the traps, however they also hit the medial deltoids, well for me they seem to.

    She lifts pretty good weights for a girl, although I don't think the lighting was bright enough for her indoor shades.

    p.s upright row wasn't that good.

    as said the upright row was ok but not perfect, also he states they are for posterior/rear deltoids although they are not they hit medial and traps (afaik)
