Does anyone have any good exercises for broadening the shoulders or the delt muscles? Thanks! :)

Delts...side lateral raises for side delts front raises for front delts...to widen shoulders military bar presses and dumbell shoulder presses rear delts reverse flyes...also pullups will help shoulders but also back and biceps ...for traps shrugs and clean give good results...but for shoulder width Id go with th presses pretty hard

Lat raises are a personal favourite. Also consider heavy pulldowns. Wide lats add to the "broad shoulders" effect ;)

I play basketball and one of the excersises we do helps strength the shoulders and in response wider shoulders. So basically we do twenty push-ups then we stand up and hold our arms out straight ( straight as in where your body looks like a cross). Now yu will move them in a circular motion, and reverse, then pull your four arm up and move up and down, kinda like bench weights by standing up and lifting above your head, and the different things like that. Be sure to keep your arms up. This will burn and make your shoulders tight and strong and wider. Do this for about 2 minutes

Work all three heads of the delt. Hit the front, side and rear. Prone reverse dumbell flys and cable crossovers hit the rear, lateral raises and overhead presses hit the side pretty well. The front head is optional, especially if you do overhead presses. Those hit the side and front heads pretty hard. But if you are going to walk away with any helpful hints from this topic, let it be the unsung hero: the rotator cuff. Everyone neglects the rotator cuff. Every time and I mean every time I work the rotator cuff, someone in the gym stops to ask what that exercise works...nobody understands. Like a foreign language amongst the bench pressing arm curlers. Directly.Work. The. Rotator. Cuff. Your shoulders will get huge, you will boost your pressing weight and women will want to cry on them.
