- Set the bar up at mid-thigh on the pins, with a wider than shoulder width grip.
- Allow scapula to fully depress prior to the move.
- Using some momentum, pull the bar into the ‘shrug’ position, hold one second, and lower.
- This allows more weight than a conventional shrug and is actually safer for your levator scapulae.
- The move can also be done with heavy dumbbells.
