Trap Anatomy

  1. Trap Anatomy


    I'm interested in learning more about trap anatomy. Grey's is too dense, and experimenting in the gym just messes with my regimen. Can anyone hit me with a quick crash course? Upper, middle, lower maybe?


  2. check out exrx.net and go to the muscle directory.

  3. Thank you!

  4. Its pretty simple. Im a kinesiology major this is off the top of my head:

    Upper trap originates on upper thoracic and cervical vertebra spinous processes i beleive, and inserts on the spine of the scapula. Action: elevation of scapula, and upward (medial) rotation of scapula

    Middle: origin: thoracic spinous processes. Insertion: medial border and part of spine of scapula. Action: retraction of scapula

    Lower: origin: lower thoracic spinous processes. Insertion: lower medial border of scaplua. Action: retraction and upward (medial) rotation of scapula.
    Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.

  5. Thanks bezoe.
