    That looks like enough volume as it is... all I do for shoulders is military press and clean and jerk, and mine are developing alright. Well, how do your shoulders look right now?

    Work towards military pressing your bodyweight.

    That'll give you some big delts.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    sorry for off topic.. but is the proper way to do military press to use your legs slightly too? like a little spring from them. OR to just stand there and raise the weight using all upper body strength.
    Starting over...

    You get out what you put in.

    If you use your legs at all, that's a push press.

    I would suggest a lot of overhead pressing. Alternate military with BTNs. Alternate two arm and one arm dumbell presses, also alternate doing them seated and standing. Side lateral raises, seated, standing, bent over alternate them. Figured out which rep range your body responds best to, and take it from there.

    Before you go to train everyday, think about the less fortunate and what they would give to just have the opportunity to be training like a madman.

    Some people however are able to use the trunk as an effective tranfer of energy, which makes it still technically an overhead press.

    What are BTNs?

    He asked about a military press, not an overhead press.

    It's pretty self-explanitory, but I haven't seen people do them with a barbell or dumbell.

    Example: Set a bar of your choice on a cable and pull it to your face.

    I'm not a fan of these personally, but I suppose an upright row is like a barbell face pull kind of.



    Weighted Circles? I'm not too familiar with that exercise. Are you talking about like grabbing a plate and just doing circles with it?

    My shoulder exercises currently are.....

    Standing Military Press with Thick Barbell
    Standing Log Push Press
    Lateral Raises
    Karlsen Crucifix Flies
    Upright Row
    Incline Log Press
    Cable Crossovers
