NFM’s TRAP WORKOUTS
Although my trap dumbbell workouts differ, a common factor of each is a the “shrugging’ motion”, where the dumbbell weight is pulled or squeezed with the focus of primarily using the strength of the trapezuis muscle. The variation of trap shrugs using dumbbells are all contracted to lift the weight upward through squeezing the traps, to a point where you feel the contraction and pump at its peak. It is important to always breathe in a rhythm and consistency. When you train your body always practice correct form and good control. Each repetition to any trap exercise should be done inhaling on the way down when releasing and exhaling when you force on the way up when performing the shrug.This contraction and extension together constitute a single repetition for the trap muscles.
