Is it possible to grow "width" wise (shoulders)
« on: September 09, 2020, 06:09:37 AM »

Is it possible to enlarge your shoulders? What kind of supplements would help it? I read it something about Jeff Seid. Someone was saying that even though he wasn't tall he's pretty wide because he had some kinda supplements.

My growth plates are %99 fused but I'm asking this for my little brother.

Is it possible to enlarge your shoulders?

https://www.eppleyplasticsurgery.com/21509-2/

Just work out your upper body. There a ton of androgen receptors up there, not like calves that will stay chicken L. That'll get your shoulders more than wide enough, without the risk or the cost of surgery. You can't work out the bottom of your feet or the top of head to get taller.
Plus back widens until 20+ in men.

Oh you misunderstood me! I was talking about supplements etc. I was not talking about a surgery at all. My brother's plates are still open so there might be a huge chance for him to get wider.

I'm talking about the bone width. Not bulking up. There must be a way to enlarge it.

Yes, the clavicles don't seal till like 23 on average. HGH will work. If you can afford it, go ahead.

It’s so easy to get wider shoulders by doing pull-ups, you don’t need any supplements.

I'm talking about the bone width, as I said. Bulking up is not widening your bones. It's adding muscle mass on your humerus which will cause an illusion of broad shoulders.

Wait? My growth plates are fused, but would this also work on me?

Ikr.

a, give us some numbers. How tall is your brother, how old, how wide ~roughly are his shoulders. My shoulders were as wide as my waist at 18, and now at 21 they're like double that. They're probably still getting wider.

Why am I not getting wider? Since I hit puberty, I just grew 4 inches and I stopped everything. I cannot even get wider. I'm a slim guy. Would this also work on me though?

I don't exactly know my brother's measurements. But he is 6'1.

Also again, why haven't I gotten wider and suddenly grew a beard lol? My puberty sucks.

Edit: O_99, did your shoulders get wider even though you grew a beard etc.? I don't wanna remain slim lol. Also, were you like me and suddenly got wider? Or were your shoulders growing regularly?

I fkn feel like Kirk Hammett. He's slim as fk too. I don't wanna remain like this. If there are methods which would work after the plate fusing, just tell me and I'll do it.

Semi-beard at 15, when stopped growing taller fast. Gradually became more dense (still not full :[ ). Since 15 I have grown like 3cm in height, but only "recently" my back started to look wider. How old are you?

Just consider me as a teen. I'm well under 20. Older than 15 though. And nothing has changed for the past 2 years. Height, shoulders etc. I feel like im out of puberty.

Just grow muscle. There's rly nothing u can do about shoulder width in terms of bone even with hgh. It's rly not gonna do much, unless you weight bear with your shoulders 😉 which ain't happening lol

And as u age it'll grow more slightly so dw about it just do ya thang and dab

Only by building muscles.
If you are a skinny one then steroids is the only way to go to have big shoulders, although I don't agree with that. Especially people who don't train for years won't see much difference even with steroids.

I don't know. But if you're 17 or so, they aren't.

Also, there is no such thing as
It's adding muscle mass on your humerus which will cause an illusion of broad shoulders.

Look at Mr Olympia Ronnie Coleman early 2000s, and look how "broad" his shoulders are now.

Just work out your upper body. There a ton of androgen receptors up there, not like calves that will stay chicken L.

And the natural testosterone you have will do the rest.

Let's forget muscles for now:

Are doctors lengthening clavicles or other bones to make our skeletons wider?

I'm talking about the actual bone. Not talking about putting muscle on it. I mean, is there a possible way to widen your shoulders which you'll also have broad shoulders even though you are SKINNY as fk, tall people as an example. Ik 2-3 guys who are like 60kg and 185cm, they have insane shoulders. I wanna at least reach there if its even slightly possible.

Not muscles or anythingggg the bone itselfff maybe hgh or something would actually maje impact on itt thats what im askinggg

Yea so if u want the actual bone growth then you need to weight bear on it but like no one does that and it's highly impractical.   like laying on each side pushing heavy pressure against the bone lol. Retardedd stuff

Don't worry too much abt shoulders anyways. Just don't be skinny skeleton and it'll look fine tbh. Maintain a bmi of like >23 and it'll look broad tbh.

Oh thank you, I'm just trying to make things better when I have the time (age wise) for my future CLL (if happens, just in case) that's why I'm worried. And I'd love to do whatever I could. But seems like it all geneticccs.

Clavicle lengthening, lifting for bigger shoulders, or HGH if your clavicle hasn't finished growing.

Does it lengthen the bone?
I am not asking about winning a bodybuilding context, I mean getting the actual bone longer, real and measurable length, not appearance.

I have trained at gym a lot of years after that, I have abandoned it due my short height deception, I don't want to train my muscles if I don't become taller first. I know that it can be useful, but weight training it's too difficult for me now. :(

There are only 4 ways to make your shoulders broader.
 if you feel your shoulders could be wider there's some options.
1. Go to the gym and start lifting to widen your upper body. Add as much muscle mass + Testosterone
2. Add implants to your delts to give the illusion to broader shoulders
3. Fat transfer from other parts of the body to shoulders (this is common among body builders-only go for top plastic surgerons for this)

4. Clavicle lengthening is the final. The widening the bone kind of like leg-lengthening but for the clavicle. Only two doctors I think do it. Dr Eppley and Dr. Leif from Beverly Hills
apparently clavicle surgery is common among females who want to shorten but the opposite can be done. It does leave a scar unless you take care of that immediately and is diligent with minimizing

You should try to add bulk regardless you get the surgery or not

Thank you for the nice information Sky,

I think clavicle lengthening would be extremely dangerous so I don't think I'd ever do it. But at least you understood what I want unlike the other people. I don't want an actual "broad shoulders" I want an actual "long clavicle" so my shoulders would be broad. But seems like we can't do anything except putting weight on as ghkid said. But that's not practical, as he also said which I agree.
