Barbell Shrugs

If any of you are wrestling fans then you have probably heard of Goldberg. Bill Goldberg was a phenomenon in pro wrestling. He was larger than life, intense, entertaining and powerful. One of the things that really stood out about Goldberg was his powerful shoulders and those huge traps that sat on top of them. When he flexed and posed it looked like they were going to rise above his head. After he got popular it seemed everyone that watched wanted to do something in the gym the next day to get those huge muscles.

What many people do not know is that the trapezius muscles actually are not part of the deltoids. They are a part of the back. They run from the shoulder area straight down your back along your spine. Regardless of what they are a part of you probably want to know how to build them so let's get to it.

Nothing is better for building the traps than heavy weight. As long as you use good form on the movement, then the heavier the better. Most power lifters have big traps because of all of the heavy dead lifts they do. Johnnie Jackson is a perfect example of this. He has said he actually doesn't train traps at all and his traps are huge.
