Medial Deltoid MuscleWorking on the lateral and the posterior deltoid (shoulder) give the rounded look that most fitness exercisers desire.
The function of the lateral deltoid is for shoulder abduction, flexion and transverse abduction.
The origin is onto the lateral side of the acromion on the scapula.
The insertion is onto the lateral side of deltoid tuberosity on the humerus.
Make sure to vary the exercises between cables and freeweights to train the deltoids properly.
