Everyone who lifts benches. Not everyone who lifts has a big neck. If you want traps that touch your ears, you gotta do heavy, heavy shrugs. I actually think a lot of people don’t do shrugs because there’s not a lot of movement involved.
Olympic Lifts and Deadlifts are without a doubt better all-around lifts but if you want your neck to be nonexistent you got to do Shrugs. [/quote]
Agreed. Deadlifting and powercleans always did shit all for my neck development. And it’s not like I’m “weak” at them, I’ve pulled 550lb and powercleaned 230lb.
Once I started doing hevay power shrugs I finally started to develop a pair of traps. It helped my lockout too.
