I invented an exercise for the delts. I also do other trap exercises, but this is
my favorite for that area. The basic motion is the same as drinking a cup of coffee. Lean froward
and rest a hand on a weight rack so that your back is at a 45% angle. Take a dumbell, palm down, and move it up and down about a foot ending around your nose. You want this to get the delts, so you have to avoid involving the elbow.
If you are doing this right you will get the rear delts, but it also works the front ones. You need to strengthen your shoulders to fix the problem.
Try doing a press exercise like pushups or bench press. Then use you arms as shock absorbers when you hit a bump. Seated rows are also good for cyclists.
My gym has a delt machine that is just terrific. In general, I go to a gym that has day passes, mostly
I go once a week, so that works best for me.
