    what would you suggest for traps? i can isolate the traps on the smith really well.

    thats what i do, instead of shrugging, i stand with the bar behind me and i lean forward a little, then i shrug

    deadlifts work your traps well, also.. maybe a trap bar? :slap::

    upright rows do a good job, too:
