    shoulder width is mostly bone structure. but if you wanna build shoulders, do deads, heavy shrugs, and shoulder presses.

    Well what i mean is to build my delts enough so that they stick out farther, giving the illusion that in fact my shoulders are broad.

    Yeah , you can build side delts, but shoulder width is a function of the length of your clavicle.

    There's no exercise that will lengthen the clavicle

    is you want your delts to look big from behind , do seated behind the neck military press they will do the trick, 3 -4 sets 6-10 reps, go all the way down but they destroy your rotator cuffs

    why would you tell him to go all teh way down then tell him it will destroy his rotator cuffs? never go behind the neck with an ohp. go front of face, usually no further down then your chin.

    Re: Broadening Shoulders

    Yeah , I don't like BTN presses or lat pulldowns for that reason

    Stick with in front of face. You'll be able to lift more weight as well

    Re: Broadening Shoulders

    Wide Grip Military presses, Wide Grip bent over rows, Wide Grip Benching if you bench

    For anyone that doubts the ability of the shoulder structure NOT enlarging
    Please look at first year swimmers or rowers vs 4th and 5th year swimmers and rowers

    the best exercise for side/front delts and shoulders and arms at the same time...

    Hang High Barbell Pulls
    and Hang High Dumbell Pulls

    do them twice a week after your bench press.. cut out all shoulder press and lat raises..

    Hang High Barbell Pulls 4x6
    Hang High Dumbell Pulls 4x10

    trust me your forearms,biceps,shoulders, side and front lats will be worked out..and you will get wider..
    high
