    Mine tends to stay flat
    I usually do trap 3 times a week with heavy shrugs, upright and front bb raises

    ^This, all day. Add farmer's walks and heavy rows and you'll never need to shrug or do damaging upright rows again.

    Deadlifts, Farmers, Heavy Shrugs, Cleans, Snatch-grip anything.
    What are we calling a heavy shrug here? If you can shrug 3x/week, there's no way it's heavy enough.

    face pulls and high cable rows plus everything else said above.

    i tend to think that seated DB shrugs are far more effective then barbell but thats just me.

    Farmer Walks gave my traps the most noticeable growth, when I trained them after deadlifts & rows. Keep the variation going with barbell shrugs, High Pulls, "Kroc" Rows, face-pulls & band pull-aparts.
