'sup everyone. Long time.
I'd appreciate some advice on how to minimize my trap involvement in sholuder exercises. They're bigger than they should be right now, nothing too serious, but already they give my shoulders that sloped, caveman look. I haven't done shrugs in years, and I've thrown out the upright rows about a month ago, but the damned things overpower the delts still. Maybe it's the deadlifts? Or the rows? Currently, I work rear delts with flyes after back and side delts with flyes after chest on 2 separate, yet consecutive days. It's 4 sets of each in the 12-6 rep range. I feel the traps much better than the delts on both days. I do the flyes straight-armed, with a slight bend at the albow.
