    here ya go

    take a weight thats good for 10 reps, use dumbbells

    do side lateral raises, front lateral raises, rear lateral raises
    10 reps each, one set after the other, thats one GIANT set
    do this 3 times for a total of 3 sets, you can use different weight for each movement as you will be stronger on certain ones.

    Example

    Sides 40x10
    fronts 40x10 this is all one set
    rear 30 x 10

    do this for 3 sets

    now go onto db shoulder press for 3 sets of 10 reps, be careful as you will be alot weaker then usual, choose your weight carefully

    now go onto barbell shrugs ( use your own weights, heavier or lighter depending on what you normally do)

    315 x15
    405 x10
    495 x6

    thats it, you wont be able to brush your teeth after but you will be swollen beyond belief



    you can thank purevl

    do shoulders 2x a week for 6 weeks. Don't do the same routine each week either.

    are you retarded giving him that routine? He's obviously a beginner so you don't want to over load him.


    Try doing some basic movements to get your form down and less is more in your situation.

    just because his shoulders are little doesn't mean he's a beginner, he could just mean little in comparison to the rest of his massive body

    I can't do too many jery-sudden movements...i broke my collar bone really bad last year, and it always pops around. I don't know how it would hold up to weighted-jerky movement. :wtc:

    i do arnolds, bb press (seated bringing them down in front of you), and some lateral raises (the ones that look like nazi marching).

    also on chest day i use db's instead of bb for flat and incline

    -Start w/ DB Military 4x10

    -THen front lateral raise (when weights are perpendicular move them to the front and do a reverse front raise, then go up with the front raise, extend them wide and go down with a lateral raise) - need light weight for this...4x10

    - Rear raises after that 4x10

    -finish with 3 sets of dips each set until failure...

    dips work the rear delts? Shit that news to me. To think I was always under the assumption it put stress on the anterior deltoid muscle.

    YOu have no idea how to work your shoulders. YOu do not do dips as a shoulder movement. If you had any common sense you would know that most people have OVERdeveloped anterior deltoid muscles compared to posterior and medial heads. You don't want to use the anteriors more than you have to as the imbalance will often lead to tears.
