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.

One of the "theories" that tends to be bandied about on the internet, about shoulder training, is that they are a relatively small muscle group...might be why people have this image concerning their training.

I was going to start another thread about this.
