    Traps Yet again

    OK when doing shrugs...whats the best form. Some say circles some say just up and down, and some say up and back a little then back down.

    Which is it? Been told the circles are bad for the shoulders?

    if you can rotate yourshoulders without hurting yourself you not using heavy enough weight!
    Up and down is the way.

    I agree up and down. And go slow and squeeze at the top of each rep.
