🔥 DAMBBELL SHRUGS EXECUTION
💪 Grab a set of dumbbells, stand tall, and allow your arms to hang by your sides ( shoulders slightly retracted) with your palms facing each other with a shoulder width apart stance ideally.
✅ Make sure you’re back, head and neck are in a neutral position while having your elbows/ triceps locked out.
Being this is the standing variation make sure your quads and knees are locked in place while keeping your glutes contracted and core tight.
💥 Now that your set-up is good!
Execute by raising your shoulders toward your ears as high as possible, and then lower the weight back to the starting position in a controlled manner or I like to think of pushing the weight towards the floor.
Make sure you don’t let your shoulders take over and roll forward to get superior activation in your traps.
