    1) I need to do Weighted Dips in my workout tonight, but I dont have anything to do dips on. What is an alternative to dips?

    2) what are power Shrugs?

    shrugs starting from the floor instead of a hang

    No, a power shrug is done from the hang. It's performed explosively with a forceful thrust from the hips/legs

    sorta like a cheated motion shrug. ppl look at me like a freak when i do em, but its the only way (and face pulls) that work my traps nice.

    power shrugs = while standing with the barbell, bend down so the bar is a little above your kneecaps, explosively shrug it, try to hold it at the top of the movement. it should be heavy enough to where you can't hold it in the top position
