When I lived in MS & worked for Ole Miss.  We had a coach that used to joke with me in the gym and say….


“E, my man, when you live in the south guys focus on the 3 Ts!  Big TRAPs, BIG TRIs, and CLEAN TIRES ON THE TRUCK!”


I thought is was hilarious!  But I have to admit, since I was a teenager I have always worked on having big TRAPs & TRIs.  No Lie, when I was 14 my friends & I would literally try to shrug the world in weight.


To this day I still work on shrugs, my wife @ironbodybyartemis jokes with me when I start to do my shrugs.


Now I focus on using a weight that I can work the full ROM of the shrug & have no other movement happening in my neck & back.  See this is the key to shrugs as with any other isolated movement.  Let the area you are working on do the work!


I’ll work a moderate load and bang out like 20-25.  To the point I feel a good burn & fatigue the traps.


Many times I even find that when I am experiencing some neck and shoulder tension, these sets of shrugs actually get my traps to settle down & I find more Neck & Shoulder ROM!
