More Than Just A Gym

1. Wider Grip = Wider shoulders
When performing barbell shoulder presses a wider grip recruits more muscle fibres from the lateral head of the shoulder. Change your grip to 1 and a half times shoulder width and watch them shoulders grow.
2. Perform a variety of side raises
Everyone knows a standard dumbbell side raise and your body is probably stale from using it every shoulder workout. Next time you train shoulders try adding in cable side raises, holding side raises and a favourite at Cargill's Gym & Personal Training, Supinated leaning forward side raises.
3. Work your traps
To create a look of width and thickness you need traps. Upright rows get alot of stick for wrist injuries but a wider grip (look at trick 1) will reduce the strain on the wrists and works the lateral head of the shoulder harder. Add upright rows and a shrug movement at the end of every shoulder workout for best results.
