i want big monster traps!....how????

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. When I do behind the back shrugs I don't just shrug I try to get the bar as high up my back I can with my arms also. Thats gets me sore everytime.


  2. Try giant sets then man of really really high reps.Traps,Calves and Legs all respond well to high reps and high volume to grow.They're endurance muscles.So test that endurance and when you find out what it is............. force yourself to do more.If you wanna get those traps big,you better be prepared to tolerate some pain

  3. idk if anybody has said this or not, but do deadlifts but shrug it at the top. you will be surprised how sore your traps get and how fast they will grow.

  4. My reps for shrugs are 25 15 12 10 8 6 8 10 12 15 25
    And I'd say I have pretty monstrous traps, atleast that's what the hoochies say.
    I also did 315x50 last week just to say I did an I noticed growth from that

  5. You want bigger traps, get bigger. How big do you think your traps are going to be at 160lbs?

    Eat food, do the basics(dead, shrug, upper back work, scapula retractions, etc), and profit.

  6. What Frank said...

    And, snatch grip deadlifts. Nothing beats snatch grip deads for overall back development.

  7. Hope this question isn't stupid ...what is the difference between snatch grip deadlift and regular deadlift?

    1. Raising and pulling together the shoulder blades under load is what the traps do, and the deadlift works this.

    2. If you have lower back issues you should strengthen your lower back, and the deadlift works this.

    3. If you have such a badly damaged lower back that you can't deadlift, you should probably find an alternative to lifting weights to stay in shape, like swimming. It's hard to pick up something heavy without ever using your lower back. Unless you're into this for using light weights to... "tone".

  16. Genetics. Look at scooby, dude a has a amazing all natural build that's he built with over ten years in the lifting game and his traps are just sad...lol

    Deads n shrugs from every angle. That's bout all there is to it. High Rep range of course. 12-25.
