what DG said.

there’s no secret exercise to “lower” traps that you shouldn’t already be doing

i do rows(upright and bent over)deadlifts, lat pull downs, pull-ups,“cable pulls” as they were described to me, but i feel i need more

give it time.

Perform the exercises properly.

The rows ‘bent over’ and deads will hit them hard.

The ‘cable pulls’ assuming we are on the same page will hit them somewhat as well as long as you contract the shoulders together and you aren’t pulling with your lower back and all arms.

Heavy deads with proper form will build up a GREAT back.

The prone y raise facedown on a bench using dumbells is good shit at the end of a back workout for lower traps.

link works, try it again

page two, prone y raises but do it on a bench with light dumbells

Try shrugs with the BB behind you. Its best done on a smith machine.

Hex-bar Deads hit my lower traps great. Better than conventional Deads.

Kelso Shurgs work extremly well for lower traps. I believe in Kelso’s book he had almost a dozen different variations.

Rack Pulls work nice too.

Face pulls
T bar rows
