    you can put muscle on your shoulders. in purs routine there are a couple shoulder exercises. thats about all i can think of. military press, side laterals, rear laterals, shrugs?

    Shoulder width is 90% genetics.

    You can add "some" size to the outsides of your shoulders with nice delts etc. But for the most part, if you dont have the width by the time you are 16, its not gonna happen.

    Widen your back and work on your side delts.

    Also a slim waist will increase your shoulder:waist ratio.

    Even if you've got narrow shoulders, you'd look a lot bigger with a 28 inch waist than a 34

    you guys are crazy... doing upright rows and a lot of side delt work has really been increasing my shoulder width

    We said, you can increase your delts, but, the width of the bone structure remains the same.

    My shoulders are so fucked up that doing lateral raises with the 5lb'ers tear em up real good. I still have to swing em a little though.

    Heavy overhead pressing along with lots of upper back and lat work.
