    I had this.

    First, 3 exercises for traps is too much. 4-5 total sets a week is all you need. Remember, they are hit indirectly a lot.

    Take a nother 2 weeks off or so IMO. If it still hurst then, see a doc. Mine went away after 2 weeks off from all back/delt exercises.


    Good luck.

    Get a sports massage..it really helps.

    I never do direct trap work anymore..too painful and they're already bordering on disproportionate. As Spatch said, they get hit a lot from nearly all other upper body work.
