    Hello
    I am very new to training so I need to develop strength and size in my shoulders but don't know what the most practical exercises are.

    I would like to attain well rounded shoulders - that broaden and thicken the appearance of my narrow ones.

    Can anyone please suggest a few? Or point me to a shoulder workout.

    Thank you :-)

    I think I actually know that one: incline press.

    A standard 180-degree chest press engages (of course) the chest, as well as (I think) the triceps to a lesser extent (at least it does for me, but I've always had underdeveloped triceps).

    As you increase the incline, you focus your efforts higher on the chest, and engage the shoulders more and more.

    I'm sure there are others, and I'm sure all the serious athletes here will know them, but even I have had some small gains in my shoulders from doing chest presses on an incline so I'd say it's a good place to start for a beginner.

    Funny you should mention it. It's shoulders day.
    Look up at the top of the page where it says "workout plans". Find RJ Muscle Building Plan and go to week 3, day 4. That's a pretty good start that hits the whole shoulder area.

    Well, actually it's a snow day. Power won't stay on long enough to work. Snow isn't quite deep enough yet to ski my hill w/o risk of scraping on rocks. Even the dog is tired of playing in the snow. For now. So: shoulders, reading, chopping firewood.

    Arnold Press 5 sets of 8-10 reps

    Dumbbell Side Raises 5 sets of 12-15 reps

    Barbell Upright Rows 5 sets of 12-15 reps

    2:
    Cuban Press 4 sets of 10-12 reps

    Dumbbell Side Raises 3 sets of 10-12 reps

    Good luck and don't give up.

    When I'm doing just one muscle group a day, my shoulders workout looks like this:

    4 sets of side lateral raises with dumbells
    4 sets of front lateral raises with dumbells
    4 sets of shoulder shrugs with dumbells
    4 sets of rear delt raises with dumbells
    4 sets of overhead presses with barbell
    4 sets of facepulls with cable/weight stack
    4 sets of front lateral raises with 45lb plate

    However, right now I divide that in half and only do four of those on exercises on Day 1 and the other four on Day 4 of my workout week (six days).
