Our expert says:
A lot of it is genes, as you point out, and so no promises here. Also, the shape of our skeleton is not something we can control, and so if you have broad shoulders, that may not be something that exercise can sort out.
The only thing you can do is continue to do the very best exercise and diet that you can. Obviously, you don't want to build muscle in the shoulders, and so you should avoid any heavy lifting in the upper body, especially in exercises like shoulder press or bench press.
But other than this, I'm afraid there's no targeting of the area, you just have to continue with the cardio training, though you probably want to avoid swimming and rowing, but should stick to cycling, walking, running and so forth, to focus on the lower body.
