I have unproportional traps compared to the rest of my body. Since I am a powerlifter, that shelf has to be large enough to stabilize heavy squats and stay tight for heavy pulls. Throughout the week I do heavy db rows, high volume db shrugs, high volume face pulls, heavy rack pulls, reverse band deads and lots of rear delt work and all of this combined makes them grow at a very unproportional rate.

Big props to those big traps of yours.

My traps are unproportional, just the way I like 'em. Traps add impression of upper body size, which comes in handy for the lazier of us
My neck (ie as the traps end) is ~17.5, back when I was dedicated to lifting it was ~19.5. I contribute that to all the extra blood flow though.
Oh and I never specifically trained traps, compounds are king imo.

Does any one here find that they don't have a prominent adams apple due to having large neck muscles?

This is my first post guys but I had to share this with you. My dads uncle only met him a few times before he passed had a 32 inch neck. Man was just huge.. His fingers were like bratwurst he used to scare the crap out of me..

Squats... squat for reps with weight in front of a mirror and you'll see your neck muscles poppin out. I couldn't squat for some months earlier this year and it actually shrank.

its a wrestling thing. You can use the strength of your neck to create a bridge, as in not letting your shoulders get pinned to the ground. So you pull all your weight, and the other guys on your bum/legs, plus head,and your neck has to handle all that stress.
Workouts for this included that machine where you use your head to move it while keeping body still.
Also going tripod on your feet and the top of your head. Then using your hands to hold yourself up(for protection) and lowering your head side to side, back and forward forcing yourself up.... also laying on your back, then doing the maneuver like practice increases your strength...
Wow its been so long since wrestling....man do I miss those days...
