Sorry sorry, this is my second question in like 5 minutes already. There’s just so much to learn here!
Can anyone give me advise on some trap exercises to absolutely destroy them. So far shrugs are my fav trap exercise and I’m seeing good gains but I’d like to include mini-routines for every muscle to focus on now and then and I can’t come up with much for my traps.
I’d love to experience my traps burning just from the weight of my shirt (CT quote?)
I truly believe all you need is heavy shrugs. I get comments on mine a lot and that is all I do along with the rest of my shoulder training. They are designed to handle a lot of weight so train them that way.
I don’t know if I’ve ever felt crap from shrugs. Apparently my traps are put together wrong, and thus they don’t wanna grow.
Now, for me to get sore … cleans.
To absolutely decimate your traps, a machete or hatchet from behind works well. Be warned though, that this method is extremely painful and puts a hyooge damper on lifting.
CS quote, btw.
I agree. My traps don’t respond well to shrugs (though I haven’t tried overhead shrugs mental note to try them). I’ve been doing cleans only once per week, and my traps have been exploding.
