Heavy farmers walks, suit case carries and pryamid barbell shrugs blew mine upI have achieved square shoulders (took ten years of work), but big trap I have never had ......
With Big Traps (and no shirt) you look strong as heck, in a dress shirt, square shoulders win. I guess it's a double edged sword....... the other part of the equation is neck size a Fat / Thick Neck make for a Very Powerful lookConsidering I have both but most guys will call out the size of my traps, I go with them. To me, strength looks like big traps, forearms, calves and glute. If that is going on, chances are you are a strong MFer and/or fit as hell.
I’m the same, about 18” neck with 32” waist, it’s challenging. A few years back when I still was fighting and did a ton of neck work I had a 19,5” neck...Yes, but also a pain in the ass to get nice dress shirts, all of mine need to be tailored. 18" neck with a 33 waist doesn't work for anything off the shelf.
try 10 shrugs then 10 second hold shrugged, repeat all the way down to 1 with as little rest as possible... Absolute killer
