Some smart guy jammed the lat pull down machine at the small gym at the apartment complex where I live, and the same weight disks that were jammed happen to be linked to the shoulder press machine as well :/ So yeah, I need some dumbbell exercises for my lats/shoulders while I wait for the machine to get fixed.. Previously I would never touch free weights for my shoulders, but people have to adapt sometimes.

Thanks :)

My summer workout routine includes a reversed grip (palms facing out), bent-over row and a dumbbell shoulder press. and lovely pull ups. Winter workout is a little different and it escapes me at the moment what exercises those are.

Also One armed dumbbell rows and front/side raises. But yeah, can't beat shoulder press and pullups as already mentionned.

Like everyone else said I would start with bent over rows and DB military press. But I would also recommend, if you can, do pull ups and head stand push ups (those will kill your shoulders).

You might grow more. :)
Wish I could do shoulder presses, but years of shoulder injuries keep me from doing those. Luckily you can all the shoulder development without them. :)

I don't like to use a bench to do one arm rows. I like to find something slightly higher than my wait or level with it & steady myself with my free hand. I then go with a wide stance as I find this stretches the back more.

A good burn out for shoulders & traps would be doing up right rows with a wide, medium & narrow grip. Fail one grip, rest set for the next grip & keep going to you hit all 3 grips, That's one set.

The single most crucial exercise for gains for my lats is weighted pullups.
