Dumbbell Shrugs

  • These work the upper trapezius
  • Have palms facing each other, shoulders pulled back and a neutral head position.
  • Keeping the arms straight, shrug the weight up so the shoulders come straight up, close to the ears.
  • Pause and slowly lower. Range of motion is important, ignore those you see half-rep shrugging with extreme amounts of weight.
