🚨Seated Dumbbell Shrugs Proper Form

Dumbbell Shrugs – The most effective exercise that works on trapezius muscles. Exercise of the dumbbell with dumbbells is equally useful both for increasing the strength of our trapezoids, which contributes to the increase of our result in the basic exercises performed with the bar (deadlift, pull the barbell on the chest, etc.) and for the muscular mass of the entire shoulder belt. Agree, visually the figure of the athlete looks disproportionate, if the athlete has well developed shoulders and arms, and trapezius muscles are completely out of tune.

Technique of doing the exercise Dumbbell Shrugs

  • Take dumbbells from the floor or from the racks. To begin better with a small weight, in order to better concentrate on neuromuscular communication. To maximally isolate the work of the trapezoid, use hooks.
  • Straighten your back, look forward. If you make the Shrugs sitting on a bench, without changing the position of the body, drop onto the bench and arrange the dumbbells in such a way that they do not touch the legs or seat of the bench when lifting.
  • Lift the dumbbells up, exhaling. Movement is performed only by raising the shoulders up. Work should be smoothly, concentrating on the peak reduction of trapezoids.

  • Amplitude should be as high as possible, but deltoid muscles, biceps or the widest back muscles should not be included in the work. Try not to bend your elbows – it involves the work of the biceps and forearms, and trapeziums receive less blood filling. Do not do circular motions with shoulders at the top point – so you risk injuring the rotator cuff of the shoulder.
  • Gently lower the dumbbells down, taking a breath and feeling the stretching of the muscles. To achieve a larger pump by incorporating oxidative muscle fibers into the work, work without pausing at the lowest point, while maintaining a constant tension in the trapezius muscles.
