    Trap Help

    I just started working out my traps like a month and half ago. I do Front Barbell Shrugs, Rows, Behind the back Barbell Shrugs, and Dumbell shrugs. I now see that the right side of my bodys trap(or part of it, not exactally shure what its called) is bigger than the lefts. I don't know why. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Put your head down, and keep the tension on your traps throughout the set, use light weight and use high reps, this is what i do and it works great.

    All that sounds good but traps are like calfs if you dont hurt them they dont grow. So dont go ubber heavy but moderate heavy. Dont look down but more of a tilted and also tilt your body a little that would make em hurt like a bitch

    Do some of your taining with dumbbells. That will make each muscle work independently... you're probably cheating working your right more. Try dumbbell shrugs, and pitcher pours. Grab a dumbell in each hand, hammer curl it until your elbow is at a 90º, bring your elbows out and up like you're similtaniously pouring out two pitchers of beer, tea, Koolaid (what ever floats your boat) and keep your elbows locked, go as far up past your shoulders as you can. Concentrate on form and keep the weight low enough to allow you to. This is not a power movement. Don't cheat. Try 4-5 sets of 10-12 reps of that and let me know how you feel two days later. ;-)

    i like to go heavy with the bar while doing shrugs and then right when i put the bar down, grab 2 light weight dumbells and do shrugs again untill i cant do them anymore. i do this for about 4 sets, works pretty good for me so far.
