    What do you do?
    I've been doing shrugs after shoulders for a while and I'm curious what F&N's stance on this is...:wavey:

    If I'm gonna do them I throw them into back day between rows and pulldowns just to give my lats time to rest.

    I do back and shoulders fortunately on the same day but would probably put it on back if they were separate days. Depending though on how much volume I'm already doing on my back day too....

    Usually with shoulders.

    My back workout is my most tiring workout (aside from legs of course) and I hardly have the energy for my traps by the end.

    Shoulders I don't push that hard because they develop with my back and chest workouts.... so traps get incorporated on shoulder days.
