Dumbbell Shrugs

Dumbbell Shrugs

Target Muscle: Trapezius (Traps)


Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart and hold dumbbells in each hand at your sides with palms facing your sides. Allow the dumbbells to hang down the sides of your body so that your arms are fully extended.


Elevate shoulders as high as possible. Lower and repeat.


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.
