Weight Lifting Exercises : Weight Lifting Exercises: Dumbbell Shrugs


Okay what this is called here is the dumbbell
shrugs. It’s for your traps. As you see, you’re shrugging your traps. You want to bring them
up as high as possible. The dumbbells should be used as just dead weight. You don’t want
to use your biceps or arms with this exercise. Just pretty much have them lay against the
side of your body and just have your traps bring the weights up. So just tighten up your
traps and then stretch them out. You want to continue this and do about 8-10 reps about
3-4 sets. Usually a lot of people use heavy weight for this just because they want big
traps. If you just want to get your traps a little more cut up you might want to just
use light weight and high reps. Again, continue this motion with the correct posture. Chest
up, flex the traps and stretch it on the bottom. And that’s how you do dumbbell shrugs.

  2. Cut them up by doing more reps? NOTHING could be furthur from the truth. It's taking in less calories then your burn to maintain your bodyweight that causes you to become "cut" (once the bodyfat gets low enough) not by doing more reps.

  3. @darkkarma THANK YOU. people dont know what to eat to achieve their goals, it took me years to realise that dieting is actually more important than lifting weights.
