For what you're doing, I have never seen size or strength. You are most likely just building the smaller muscles. Shrugs are for traps. Power cleans are for back and legs...

Try military press, or over head press. My suggestion is to not let your elbow break the plane of your shoulders when coming down, and also so that your elbow is a 90 degree angle when at the lowest point. Try that.
