Good afternoon all.
I have a question regarding exercise and definition. Here's a pic below of what I am asking:
I was wondering what exercises can you do to achieve that, "crease" or muscular separation? I'm pretty sure as with Abs it requires a low body fat %, but aside from that - what exercises stimulate the growth and give your bicep - a bicep not just a singe large mass. I was thinking something along the lines of shoulders? Or do even triceps kind of make a play in that, as they almost wrap around in a sense.
I do have rotator cuff issues on and off, so I don't do alot of dumbbell shoulder presses as I use to, moreso barbell ..
Any thoughts and advice? I would really appreciate it.

As they always say, genetics plays a big role in what parts develop quickly/slowly. But one thing that I noticed is crucial for good shape (not just size) to the delts is FORM FORM FORM FORM FORM. You need to make sure u have great form when doing delt exercises. Some pointers that help me, were:
1) shorten rest periods on lateral raises/ rear-delt raises (i personally do 45sec)
2) make sure the dumbells are below your elbows when doing lateral raises (kinda imagine doing lateral raises with a kettlebell)
3) try arnold presses
4) change positive/negative ratio of shoulder lifts to 1:2
As soon as i incorporated these form tweeks to my shoulder routine i started making some new gains in shoulder development. U dont need to blast your shoulders with uber sets..just keep it intense and heavy enough and you should see some improvement."Trust me, if you do an honest 20 rep program, at some point Jesus will talk to you. On the last day of the program, he asked if he could work in."
