The standard protocol for training shoulders nowadays is doing overhead presses, lateral raises and rear delt flyes or face pulls for training the heads respectively.
I was wondering whether there are any other exercises that train the lateral head of the deltoid effectively? I really dislike doing lateral raises, although I love doing military presses and face pulls.
Any input is appreciated.[/quote]

I was gonna recommend these. Fantastic exercise.
Do these bother your shoulders?[/quote]
The irony is that they do not!
My right shoulder is really fucked, but these do not hurt it while traditional laterals do! I think because there’s no front delt involvement (or any assistance from the biceps… which in my case is the reason for my shoulder pain).
