Very good point.

The modern era's gold standard shoulder workout is often:

--Overhead press variation, often in a Smith or Hammer Strength.
--Side Laterals.
--Rear Laterals.

/Done.

I have advocated more weekly compound lift work for shoulders than this, but it wasn't received very well. I was told that I was advocating too much delt work.

My rebuttal, of course, was that it is currently acceptable to do 12+ weekly compound sets for chest, but only 3-4 weekly compound sets for shoulders?

This, my friends, is epic fail and about as misguided as working abs 7 days per week, and overkilling the biceps.
