    HAven't tried them in awhile...
    just used to bar by itself. Is it normal if the range of motion is really miniscule?

    How much weight do the rest of you who do it use?

    link to an overhead shrug. I can't envision it. Do you mean squats?

    No. Its like holding the bar at extension(like the top part of a press) and shrugging.

    Do you think timber is that retarded?

    Overhead shrug:

    Start position:

    Hold the bar overhead (intermediate grip) as if you'd just completed a shoulder press. Stretch your traps by bringing your shoulders down. Keep the arms locked and the bar overhead. The trunk must be kept tight.

    The Shrug:

    While keeping a tight posture, bring the shoulders up by contracting the traps, the shoulders must go up in a straight line. Hold the highest position for two seconds.

    You'll perform a single set of twenty reps on this exercise.

    Nope, I had never heard of it, so I was just asking if it was a slip up. No need to get all testy about it.
