I have been doing the following for awhile after Deadlifts:
Powershrugs: (All weights in Lbs with BB)
6@375 (Hope to get at least 8 next time around)
Now, this has been working for me, as my traps have been growing, so I’m inclined not to switch what I’m doing, but there is a catch:
Because I’m still a pussy, I can’t grip the bar past 315lbs. So on the power shrugs I have been staggering my grip. One set Left over Right under, and switch for the next set.
(I’m trying to avoid straps as my forearms are responding pretty well, but not as fast as the rest of me. But if I need to get them, it is what it is.)
So am I setting myself up to injure myself by staggering my grip on the heavy shrugs?
