Will my shoulders will look 'too' broad if I continue with upper body weights? Watch

    I've always had big broad shoulders compared to the rest of my body. It means I've always been quite strong and I can do things like pressups/ pull ups easily but because Ive started to do upper body weights (as part of my training routine for running/cycling) I'm wondering if they will look too broad and I'l end up looking daft. I'm only 5ft and so any weight gain/loss looks like a lot compared to those of average height. Just wanted advice, should I carry on with the weights anyway, I only really do bench press, pull ups twice a week along with medicine ball/plyometric work.

    Dunno, one of my friends says her shoulders are too broad now for her to wear Brandy Melville. I don't know if that's a valid metric tho.

    meh clothes sizing isn't very valid, I can be size 6 in one shop and size 14 in another I know what she means though you try some tops on and can hear the stitching breaking apart then get stuck in the changing room thinking how the hell do I get out of this thing lol.

    It's because they are so lean and use roids
