    Whats this exercise hit?


    You take dumbells like a shrug and raise them upwards with your hands. Here is a video demonstrated by Dorian Yates.
    The exercise is on 2:52

    Prone DB shrugs minus the incline bench. They hit the middle and lower portion of the traps, maybe a little posterior delt action as well.

    what do you mean minus the incline bench?

    Im thinking the posterior delts because never saw a shrug done with raises the weights with arms, only seen shrugs with direct traps involved.

    Its still a shrug, just a variation. Still hits the traps mostly.

    Google prone DB shrugs and read the description. People use an incline sometimes. This isn't it, I'll find it, check this out.
