    do you use deadlifts? upright rows? deadlifts normally make my traps grow so quickly that i don't have to work them by themselves.

    also, when i have a problem with a certain muscle not growing, i hit them a little at the beginning of a workout, and then they are pumped up throughout the workout.

    I'm a big fan of doing upright rows, then reverse shrugs, then shrugs

    i personally love heavy upright rows, do about 5 sets of those, then about 5 sets heavy d-bell shrugs, and rverse shrugs as many reps as you can do for another set, mine are growing through the roof, i do this 2 times a week, works great

    try this do some d-bell shrugs but keep ur chin touching ur chest that will make u concetrate more stress on the traps then id say do some reverse and front barbell shrugs with heavy weight

    nothing beats upright rows... I do them close grip and then alternate to wide grip... then I do a final few sets of upright cable rows where i squeeze back my traps until they fel like they are touching each other...

    dead lifts are good as well, but first try rows and keep going slower and slower until you finally feel the muscle connection and the pump...

    HEAVY is the key man. You gotta go heavy on shrugs, and they shall grow. Example: Im 195lbs, 6'1", but i shrug 520lbs for 7 reps+. Upright rows, deadlifts, etc. Just do things heavy.

    I agree on this one! Heavy is the key. My traps used to suck. But after going really heavy they are pretty impressive now

    I do shrugs for directly working them and then on back day which is separate I do deads and upright rows which have helped alot, some chinup variations can add as well.

    Heavy is always important, I like to finish off with one lighter set at the end to really hit them hard with good form.

    i have got mine to really grow lately by doing heavy smith machine shrugs. pick up the weight and slighty lean back, tuck chin into chest and sqeeze my traps more towards the back of my head than towars my ears. then finish them off with either d-bell or diamond bar shugs...sometimes both.

    First of all post your question in the correct forum. Secondly, totally ignore this ignorant statement.

    Along with shrugs and upright rows, I like dumb cleans (I think that is the proper term) to hit the traps.

    My traps grow like weeds...probably faster than any other part. Upright rows seem to kill them. Do tons of upright rows and shrugs (good form). They will grow.

    I just started concentrating on them around November and now my traps are almost 4 times as big as they were, they grow fast and easily especially if you are on androgens because you have a super high number of androgen receptors in these muscles. You'll probably end up developing your deltoids really good trying to get at your traps.

    Lateral lifts are really good, also any machine that you pull, like rows, lateral pull down bars, etc all develop your traps and delts like crazy. Barbells doing straight out lateral lifts, shrugs, etc all also develop the traps. Machines for developing your neck muscles are also recommended so you get balanced development.

    I disagree

    I say just go for a moderate light goal of 225lbs on stiff deads and do them for reps

    2 times a week

    followed by db shrugs

    thx
