Trap Training for a No-Nonsense Physique Video Description

Dumbbell shrugs cause large amounts of friction on the thighs; as the dumbbells move up and down, the weights grind against the thighs. The one-armed barbell shrug is much smoother. Compared to a trap bar, the barbell in this movement is much more perpendicular to the floor (opposed to out to the sides), allowing for a greater range of motion. A huge underrated benefit of this movement is the teres minor and infraspinatus are forced to worked overtime isometrically to prevent the bar from moving in front of the body.
