    I've been lifting almost a year now, but my shoulders haven't been improving much as my other muscles. my biceps and triceps are getting bigger, but my shoulders are flat!!! it looks funny

    anybody have a good shoulder routine? i've used maxot for it, but my shoulders don't respond well to it for some reason. i could only military press 125x6!

    also, is there anythng besides roids that'll broaden my shoulders (the bones)? just curious

    There is no way to appreciably widen the bones in your body once the growth plates have fused. I suggest that you try a pre-exhaustion routine of side laterals supersetted with behind the neck presses. Warmup first, then perform this superset for 2-3 cycles.

    Try a shoulder specialization routine for 3-4 weeks.Twice a week, pick one overhead pressing movement(push presses,militaries,behind-neck presses,etc.) and after warming up use a 6x6 format using the same weight for all 6 sets.Once you can get every rep with the same weight, add weight and repeat.My training partner and I have used this program twice in the past 8 months with great success.Give this program a try.If you do, eliminate or reduce your chest and tricep work by atleast 50% or you will overtrain your pushing muscles.
