Shoulder exercises

I was wondering what are some good shoulder workouts with or without weights. My shoulders are tiny, narrow things followed by huge arms and thick hips. I want to be more proportionate. Help!

OP here again.

And how do you do the exercises? I don't know any at ALL.

The shoulders have three distict parts so:

1. Front raises - stand there and raise the dumbbells in front of you to horizontal with mostly straight arms
2. Side raises - stand there and raise the dumbbells out to the side to horizontal with slightly bent arms
3. Rear raises - bend over forward and raise the dumbbells out to the side to horizontal with slightly bent arms

Do 3 sets of each at 12 reps - once or twice a week DONE. Voila' bigger shoulders - guaranteed!

I use a shoulder press which has 3 positions..lying down, sitting and recline..hits the shoulder at different angles. I've had great success with these.

If you belong to a gym, take a sculpting class and ask the instructor to be sure to include shoulder work. I got several out-of-the-ordinary moves that way, and for the first time ever I can see as well as feel the difference in my shoulders.

Ok here's the bible everyone needs to add to their favorites on the web.

Click on the body part you want to focus on, such as shoulders, and voila!!

I live by this thing. :-)
