Set the Traps

Set the Traps

There’s more to building impressive traps that just the shrug. The following workout is meant to be done once a week on its own (separate from back and shoulders). It calls into duty a number of targeted trapezius movements, building thickness and width from your neck down to the center of your back.

  • Clean Shrug – 4 sets – 12, 10, 8, 5 reps
  • Smith Machine Shrug – 4 sets – 12 to 15 reps
  • Behind the Back Smith Machine Shrugs – 4 sets – 12 to 15 reps
  • Incline Prone Dumbbell Front Raise – 3 sets – 15 reps
  • EZ Bar Upright Row – 3 sets – 10 reps
  • Kettlebell Sumo Deadlift High Pull – 3 sets – 30 seconds
