    Why's this article say that the middle head's called the medial deltoid? There's a better argument for calling it lateral, because it's origin on the acromion is actually further away from the midline that bisects out body than the anterior head (clavicle) or posterior head (scapular spine).

    Course I just say mid-delts.

    It says that because it is the correct anatomical term.

    Trying it out

    I'm a seasoned half-ass weight lifter and in my years of doing it, I've developed a very dominant torso (both chest and back) and my arms, shoulders, and legs are lacking. I got a boost from a diet the past 2.5 months and losing 17 pounds and I see the results that can happen when you put in dedication. Therefore this program may meet both my goal of a solid routine and balancing my body back out. My main goal is strengthen shoulders and legs and then comes bi's and tri's. My back is pretty huge compared to the rest of my body so I'm going to try cutting out the back workouts, at least for 2 months or so, to give extra energy for recovery and growth in the rest of my body. I was thinking about cutting down the time between shoulder workouts so that I have only 2 rest days between shoulder workouts and see how that feels (I've overtrained shoulders before and I'm not going to let that happen again). I'm also going to hit the legs hard. I've actually thought of doing something like follows:

    Day 1: Shoulders Like Boulders routine and arms
    Day 2: Heavy leg routine
    Day 3: Swimming or other similar light aerobic exercise
    Day 4: Heavy aerobic like ice skating, sprinting/running, or plyometrics
    No rest days, but LOTS of sleep, avoid excessive alcohol, healthy Paleo diet

    I'll make sure to post transformation pictures. At this rate, I could complete the shoulder program in about 90 days. I really appreciate the work that went into creating this routine and I'm siked to make some improvements to my physique.

    Thank you,

    Matt
