    I work traps on back day...just like the way it feels. I will do upright rows on delts day everyother wk., which also hits my traps some.

    Traps on Back day (usually Rear Delts as well - but it all depends on the current training split i am using). Traps are located on the top of your back - not the top of your shoulders. For that same reason I also prefer to do shrugs using Dumbells leaning against an Incline Bench (set at an almost verticle angle).

    I used to do traps on back day, but I switched to shoulders. I realized that I was working the my traps too hard, so I cut back and just added them on after my shoulders.

    I preffer shoulders, i feel them on deads but dont base anything on what other people suggest, my best advice is keep on experimenting new things and eventually youll find the routine that works best for your body...Every body is different...It takes a while to learn that....
