Today was leg day for me. So I had just finished on my hack squat machine and while standing there I got this brain storm. I wondered if I could stand in it with my hand to my side and shrug my shoulders. Fuck yes it worked. So I got off the machine added weight and went back to work.
What I liked about this was no strain on the back and no problem gripping a heavy ass bar when doing standing shrugs with heavy weight. All my concentration was on my traps and not worrying about grip or anything else. I'm sure this is not new but was for me and from now on it will be the way I work my traps.
