    Looking good man.

    I like front dumbbell raises, lateral raises, bent over lateral raises, and Arnold Press for shoulders.

    Keep up the good work stud!

    I'm working on those too, bent over lateral raises really target the rear delts. Do both dumbbell sets and cable sets for this exercise, as they both offer resistance in different ways, which is best for overall balance.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    1615,

    You have great shoulders. I say reverse cable flys and good ole push ups! Try a variation on them. A buddy of mine calls them spiderman push ups. Lower your body put you right elbow to right knee-repeat left elbow to left knee! It shifts more weight forward. I love doing them now.icon_exclaim.gif

    Yep, or do pushups with your knees on a stability ball and hands flat on the floor, leaning slightly forward to target your shoulders.

    Try walkouts.

    Start with your hips on a swiss ball, walk out on your hands until you're balanced on the tops of your feet, do a pushup, walk back. That's one.

    Or, if you want it easy, walk out and just to pushups.

    Also try wall pushups (unless you can do handstands). Do a handstand on the wall and then do pushups.

    If you're going to do wall pushups, make sure you have someone spotting you though.
