I'm kind of lacking in my shoulders, mainly in my side delts.
What are good exercises to do to bulk them up some more?

I really like cables for lat raises...
I'll go between front and side lat raises increase weight by 5lbs for abour 3 sets of 8-10 then do two more sets of 0.5*max for 20-30. Then just replace the handle with a rope and do a set of face pulls with a similar rep scheme. Great way to work out all three heads in a relatively short amount of time.
But of course you still need to supplement with some heavy shoulder presses, rows, etc.

DB lateral raises are best for targeting it... if you're doing a main shoulder press movement then I'd do the dumbbell shoulder press (seated or standing) if I were you, since it's supposed to use less front delt and a little more side delt than barbell pressesCheck out my website: http://www.kingofthegym.com/

i like doing 3 or 4 sets of side laterals, then 4 sets of push presses with a grip a little wider than shoulder width to start off. At the end of my shoulder workout, i like to grab a pair of 10 or 15 pound dumbbells and do a long set to failure with 5 second positive and 5 second negative on each rep. i have seen a noticable difference over the past 2 months doing this. i agree with Justin about volume. My shoulder workout consists of more sets than my chest or back workout. Lying side laterals are also a great exercise"If We Cannot Find A Way, We Will Make One" - Hannibal
