  1. Favorite Trap Exercises


    What are some of your favorite trap exercises? Personally, I like DB shoulder shrugs and BB shoulder shrugs (hands behind back), but would like some more to try out. Any suggestions??

  6. deadlift/barbell shrug superset
    snatch-grip deadlift/snatch-grip shrug superset

  7. dead lifts and DB shrugs.

  8. dumbell shrugs 10-15 reps X 5 sets

    for example: 40lbs dumbells 12 reps (warmup)
    100lbs 10 reps (almost failure)
    100lbs 12 reps (to failure)
    90 lbs 10 reps (to failure)
    80 lbs 15 reps (finishing pump + burn)

    Much like my workout, except I pyramid from light to heavy. I also like to throw in a failure set. Once I finish my 100 pound set I will grab lighter dumbbells and go to failure.

  10. I like using my trapbar.

  11. Carrying bags after food shopping, from supermarket to house (1 set - to arrival)

  12. trapbar is sweed for traps.. i do heavy ass DL pulling to a max single every week almost i dont need a trap routine that works well enough!

  13. Rack Pulls
    Yates Rows w/ Trap Bar
    Unilateral DB Shrugs

    in that order
