To make a long story short, about a year and a half ago, I injured my right shoulder in a football collision, and the right deltoid is hanging down. I completed the Physio for about a month after that, and my doctor told me I was on my own to “work at it” since then, and try to regain my “normal” posture. I wish I had posted on one of these forums then, but that’s over with.
I went out and purchased a free-weight set at that time (a year ago, Dumbells, Barbell 90 Pounds of weight) which is ok, but the routine which came with it was not. I have just come to realize that it was some sort of keep fit on minimum time kind of thing. So a week ago, I decided to purchase 90 pounds more, and start over. I just need help! [By the way, there was no nerve damage, it was tissue, I’ve regained the strength (Tests & Physio Concluded), it just looks plain awful]
To give you and idea, my right shoulder is slanted forward, and down, which looks extremely awkward because I have some build/tone. When I’m not conscience of it, my entire upperbody just looks uneven and weird. I need to correct it & move on. So I was thinking a routine to strictly focus on the shoulders, back, posture, deltoids etc… But you guys know better than me, so correct me if I’m wrong, please.

How long you have been training (seriously!)
About 2 Years Training “Seriously”, but not continually (4 Months On, 2 Off, 5 On, couple weeks Off for lazy and stupid reasons…)
My Goal is to Straighten & Broaden my Shoulders, develop great Posture, & add Muscle & Tone to my Back.
How long have you been on this same routine?
Since I began working out.
Have you made gains on this routine, and if so in what way (Heavier weights / mass)?
My Biceps & Triceps have made good gains. In combination of fat + muscle mass, I’ve added about 7-10 pounds. My shoulder has made minimal progress.
What is your diet like?
I try to get as much Carbs as I can, 3-4 Medium/Big Meals, all sorts of things in between. I don’t eat much green, or vitamins, I can start on a dime, if it would seriously benefit me though.
Have / are you taking any supplements and/or anabolic agents (optional)
Just creatine, before and after, but I don’t think I was burning all of it sometimes… which means it turned into fat? right?
Thats about it, there is a website which has good diagrams for improving posture, but there are too many different exercises listed (I need help finding the most effective ones, and putting together a Tues/Thurs/Sat routine), These might help you, help me better, I’m not sure.
