    oh shrugs, bent over shrugs, farmers walk, hang clean, power shrugs, reverse bench shrugs, etc....im pretty sure you could get descriptins with google.

    I saw mention of these when I was looking for trap exercises, but I didn't think it would do much. Does the bar need to be on top of your traps instead of resting behind them?

    Don't bother with hang cleans unless you have someone coaching you. You'll fuck the lift up horribly and end up doing more harm than good.

    hmm, it states it targets the side delts. but supports the trap muscle group.

    thing is, i have my shoulder day separately... so i guess its best to do traps the same day with shoulders eh?
