The poll should not have been made exclusively back or shoulders. I work both back and shoulders on the same day and I work traps with back and shoulders. But I guess I also work traps on leg day, too. I'll do a snatch lift on chest/shoulder day and heavy cleans on leg day which both hit the traps from different angles.

With back but I might switch them w/ shoulders, they're growing way faster than anything else

I hit them directly along with my back to get some focused lifts for traps and in all honesty I try to hit all muscle groups at least indirectly twice a week.

with shoulders,... but only for 4 weeks straight then i gotta take a couple weeks off, or either a month. My traps are highly responsive to direct work. My shoulders used to be lacking big time, I stopped the trap work for a while, and my shoulders came in very nice. Then when the trap work came back in it looked like my shoulders shrunk back down to 2 yrs before then lol. I just wish the rest of my body was like that.

Shoulders. If I work them out at all.

No direct trap work here. They get hit hard enough w/ deads, rack deads, barbell rows and t-bar rows.
