I had a question guys.. some guy at my gym told me that A. i dont need to do any trap exersizes (ie shrugs) andd that i should not work my shoulders, (just 4 different parts) on thursday, and do my back/bi workout on friday, i was wondering what you guys thought, i work my traps with my back

I do not do shrugs but they are filling in, just got compliments today. They get worked pretty well on shoulder day and back day, but it is an individual thing.
My split is:
and T or W I rotate hitting legs or back again

i would do your deadlifts on back day and try to go as heavy as possible. My traps actually started to grow just with alot of deadlifts. It's personal choice but i find that my traps grow fine from just deadlifts. Perhaps concentrate on deadlifts and then every other week throw in some shrugs. when i did do traps directly, i usually did them on shoulder day. hope i could help buddy.

thanks for the suggestions guys! also.. i am thinking about switching to like a mass building workout split.. not sure what it would look like. all i do know is i am not gaining **** with the 5 day split. and no strngth at all.. its rediculous and very frusterating i dont understand what i am doing wrong

i work my back/bi's together like you do, and throw in rear delt work, because its really adding in one more exercise. also, for chest/tri's, i throw in my front and mid delts (two more exercises). if you're doing secondary work anyways (pairing back and biceps), you might as well hit the other secondary muscle (rear delts). same for chest/tri's. that was the advice given to me, and its paying off.
training traps is the only way to build them. shy of really heavy deadlifts (when you train to absolute failure), there's nothing else that will get your traps to grow. i see where he's coming from though.
