Next Event: IDFA 141: CALGARY (Amateur & Pro) – NOVEMBER 16

Barbell Shrugs

Barbell Shrugs


Target Muscle: Trapezius (Traps)

Preparation
Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart and hold a barbell with both hands using a shoulder width or slightly wider overhand grip. Allow the barbell to hang down in front of your body so that your arms are fully extended.

Execution
Elevate shoulders as high as possible. Lower and repeat.

Comments
Make sure to use a weigh that you can do a full range of motion with. Meaning, don’t use a weight that you can barely elevate your shoulders. Many lifters use too much weight here and don’t get the results from the exercise that they should. Keep your ego in check.
