Heavy shrugs and a lot of sets has always helped me. Also work on your rear delts. It will show more seperation between muscle groups and look more defined.Anabolic Designs RepresenativePerform and Transformhttp://anabolicminds.com/forum/supplement-reviews-logs/171721-boagrius-logging-pes.html

Upright rows make my traps look like a partial turtle shell.
Just do like 3 sets of 12, you see what I mean.

Do a shrug at lock out
Up right rows
Dump bell shrugs - I did these wrong for years... Forget about weight and focus on contracting the muscle go slow and squeeze at the top. I see so many guys doing these wrongs wher they grab huge dumb bells and go way to fast putting their back into.

Power cleans and clean pulls for the upper traps.
Wide grip rows for the middle traps.
Scapula depressions and scapula pull downs for the lower traps.

Just make sure your doing full ROM, and squeezing hard at the top, almost trying to touch your ears.

Plenty of good things mentioned here. However know one has mentioned behind the back BB Shrugs. Incorporate these into your routine, and in a couple of weeks you'll see new growth.
Like mentioned previously, don't go too heavy, and focus on the contraction.
Also shrugs don't always have to be done completely vertical. try reducing the weight and leaning forward (don't allow your shoulders to roll forward). Also try them on an incline bench. Like your other muscles, you want to try and hit them from different angles.

Heavy deads and heavy shrugs. And I finish off my trap workout with what I call "suicide shrugs" where I'll start barbell shrugs from 405lbs and work my way down without rest 365, 315, 275, 225, 135, then just two 45lbs plates. This gets me so blown I can't even lift my neck to look up at the ceiling.
