    I usually do 1 set b'bell of shrugs from the front, 1 from the back, and often finish it off with a set of heavy low rep d'bell shrugs from the side with a hold into a slow negative on the very last rep? I do try to keep my back relatively straight and move the weight with my traps. If you see the elbows starting to bend out/ point a lot, you're mainly moving the weight with your arms.

    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Yeh I mentioned about a month or two ago that at about 5 minutes in that is a variation of shrug behind the neck where U flare ur elbows up and back to hit a different angle. For more development and really any row hits ur middle and lower traps. I also do arms straight forward on the cable row and I shrug straight back for a mid trap isolation after wide grip rows. Y raises are cool To for lower traps

    Probably why his back is nuts lol. All different unconventional angles etc and that rotations and at 5:44 is kind of like an upper traps shrugs and when he lifts up and back it's almost like a middle trap set

    I'm watching this and looking how fast he is moving with each set. I always had the thought process that you want a slow, more controlled movement, but looking at him, I wonder if the faster, non stop rhythm is better or a different change of pace. I myself could move more weight if I was using a faster movement like this.

    Sometimes I watched these body builders do weird lifts

    Roelly winklarr was doing sets of dumbbell shoulder press flys (best way I can describe them) with 30 lb dumbs.

    I think sometimes these guys stumble upon a certain movement that really gets a good burn quickly, and they implement it for a "pre-fatigue" exersize before doing heavier compound lifts

    Form is the key but every now and then its fine to go heavy and have a bit of bad form to shock the body. UNLESS you are branch warren. That bloke has the worst form all he ever seems to do is lift heavy. Works for him tho. I think when you are on that level it does not make a huge difference

    Ive really put thought into this acctually.. I think its possible certain muscles respond better to quicker more explosive movements and some to slower. I know for a fact if I was doing that behind the back action that hes showing here quickly like hes doing it my back would tighten up big time and Id be feeling a hell of a pump.

    You know? In general I dont get back pumps except for my lower back doing deadlifts. I really think keeping the pressure on the upper back and doing more consistent powerful movements may be the ticket to getting that back going.
