🚨 The Best Trap Workouts👇

✅ Let’s be honest – the unfortunate truth is that everybody wants to develop a set of lean and mean traps but almost nobody is willing to put in the hard work required for this ambitious goal. The road to building massive, sculpted traps isn’t anywhere near the typical the end of a shoulder workout.


✅ In order to grow, these bad guys demand plenty of isolated attention with different exercises that will hit the upper, middle and lower section of the traps and ensure a balanced development. And luckily for you, we know the perfect routine to stimulate maximum traps growth in the shortest amount of time possible. Here it is:

🚨 Barbell Shrug: 4 sets, 12-15 reps

1. Stand up straight, position your feet at shoulder width apart
2. Hold the barbell at thigh level with your palms facing in
3. Raise your shoulders up as far as you can
4. Hold for a second, then return to the original position

Basic Dumbbell shrugs are one of my go-to exercise to thicken those ski slopes!
I hit traps twice a week with three particular exercises, this being one of them.
My rep range is between 10 – 20 or even 30 repetitions time to time.

✅ Alternative: Barbell shrugs or Reverse shrugs.
