Sticky Thread Sticky: Daily Workout - Challenges and Victories

In light of the extreme focus this board has in regards to the 'body beautiful' (and the frustration that results in people not 'getting results fast enough'), I thought I would create a sticky that changed the focus a little.... This is a thread for posters to use to recognise 'every day'...

How do I *avoid* a wide upper back?

After a long term shoulder injury, I have gradually started training my back at home. I have a few good sets of dumbells, an exercise ball and a few kettlebells but no bench. I'm pretty sure I've developed a bit of definition recently, but I also think my already wide upper back is getting...
