I have been doing alot of rest-pause trainning and getting AWESOME results. I will change it up on my shoulders though. I guess I figured if it was working for the rest of me it work there as well. Thanks
Rest pause is great, but it's mostly for power as opposed to hypertrophy. Have you ever done supersets or dropsets? You could do something like this:

- 4 sets seated db shoulder press (8-12 reps)
- After each set immediately followed with seated side db lateral raises

- 4 sets seated db shoulder press (8-12 reps)
- Each set, immediately drop the weight by 20 pounds each db and press until you can't lift anymore
- For an added bonus, on the last drop set, do multiple drop sets instead of just 1.

The dropsets would be what I'd recommend the most as you're still doing a compound lift while trying to burn your muscles completely. However, if your triceps fail too early compared to your shoulders, the supersets might work better.
