    I’m so confused. I’ve been working out for a while, however, I never really
    did anything for my traps, although, they are quite defined. I managed to
    shrug 200kg for 6, on the Shrug Rack. How is that even possible.

    in general traps respond faster than the other muscles of the body if u
    dont wanna enup like a walking pen dont over do traps exercises once a week
    is ok for good looking upper body

    You just stopped me from doing shrugs. Thanks. Guess I’ll stick to deads
    and High Pulls for my Trap work.

    both exercises workout different parts of the cant say “oh dont do
    shruggs just dead lift”. shrugs:traps, dead lift:lower back

    No you don’t. You should always use as much weight as you can control. I
    use about 12Kg per dumbell, and my traps are just as big as I want them.

    i do front shrugs, dumbell and back shrugs. also upright row with flat bar
    (wider grip) and e-z bar (narrow grip) plus deadlift will build some nice
    traps too.

    for traps all i do is upright barbell rows 3 sets every week on my back
    day, and my traps are growing like crazy. (the other exercises i do on back
    day are lat pulldowns and dumbbell rows)

    Why I have headaches after doing this exercise? Is strechted a lot but
    still painful exercise.

    i train almost every day with ma dad. how long around abouts will it take
    to get a decent definition with my shoulders. i have been trainin for 3
    months almost every night 1 to 1.30 hours a night.

    I’m unable to do heavy deadlifts due to asymmetrical/twisted spinal support
    muscles, shrugs work wonders on my traps.

    does doing shrugs work your lower chest too? cuz it seems to make my lower
    chest bigger whenever i do shrugs

  14. Shawn Ng / September 15, 2009

    I workout regularly and intensively. I have all the nice delts, chest,
    back. arms abs and legs but I just don’t have nice and define traps. I do
    my shrugs and upright row, but I just don’t seem to develop them. Is it
    because I’m doing it wrongly? Any suggestions and advice??

    what would be a good home workout to get trapezius if you don’t have
    shrugs? if there is any please reply

  16. ATLDRUELZ / September 22, 2009

    i heard shrugs were just lazy workout for those who didnt wanna deadlift.
    lol. sounds like me. hahaha. i like shrugs better than deadlift. for me it
    works my traps more than deadlift.. but yeah
