Trap Workouts?

I was wondering other then dumbell shrugs, barbell/shrug bar shrugs and upright rows… would Hise Shrugs be fine? Would they help?

Hise shrugs are supposed to be great, but I’ve never liked em, tried em a couple of times and didn’t like em, just felt funny to me. Cleans will do nice things for your traps.

For shrugs should you have your shoulders neutral, or should you also contract your shoulder blades?

check out “The Power Look” by CT, it’s a 6-or- 8-week routine to get big traps
