Snatch Grip High Pulls = GOAT trap exercise

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoMIlBoq8Jc
>>
>>40630907
any deadlift variant will hit them

high weight rack pulls will hit them hard

top this off with low weight but good form paused at top DB shrugs
>>
Hold a heavy barbell with a snatch grip using straps for as long as you can take it, multiple times per week. Best to do it in a cage and set the safeties just one or two inches below where the bar will be in a standing position.

Also OHP, seriously, high volume OHP

Heavy deads and OHP are all you need. Powercleans are GOAT too. Quit with the accessory faggotry
>>
>>40630946
This.

Fags do variety and strict form.

Bros with towering traps do huge weight, horrible form.

Actual bisexual reporting in, and yeah, I like traps, but I also like twinks/otters (and thicc women for some reason lol) so y'know make of that what you will.

I've always thought it was neither gay or straight but bisexual/bicurious as an activity.
>>
>>40634474
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

>>40633500

Let them stay small. They probably don't dead or squat either.
>>
>>40634439
well then have fun hopping on roids. you're a dyel aren't you?
>>
>>40631271

I like traps, I'm into pegging, but I'm married to a woman and am attracted to the female form. I don't think I could even imagine myself with a man. It's certainly bi-curious, anyone who says traps isn't a little gay is in fucking denial.
>>
Power shrugs. I started doing them about a month or so ago and my traps seem to be visibly growing.

They're pretty fun too and seem to work my calves and quads.

I also ran out of weight for heavy rack pulls but I always feel the power shrugs to some degree the next day, and I'm losing more and more of my neck each day. Pretty awesome.

Heavy ass deadlifts is literally all you need for traps

That and 'the press' tm
Just do SS
>>
>>40635814
It's pretty much a hang clean but without it going near your shoulders and with a fucking huge shrug.

To simplify it's a shrug but with legs involved.

You can do a lot of weight. If you've ever done power cleans you know how great they are for traps. Now imagine how great more than double the weight is for your traps.

A clean without the floor pull.

Rack pulls above the knee with a static hold at the top
>>
>>40636399
Yep. I fuckin love power shrugs. I'm probably gonna hit 315 next week
>>
Anyone do rack pulls with over under grip? Would it be ok? My grip gives out too soon and I don't have straps.
>>
>>40637202
you're significantly increasing the chance you're gonna snap a tendon doing that because how heavy the weight gets. bite the bullet and get straps, mine were $15 and work great. Plus they last forever so it's definitely worth it.
>>
>>40637232
You're right. Thanks man.
>>
I don't want to be that faggot, but deadlifts have always been more than enough for my traps.
>>
>>40630907
Is it natural for my dick to twitch a little when I see a guy with juicy traps? No homo of course.
>>
>>40631962
Do you still claim you're the king of /fit/?
>>
>>40637103
Good for you anon. You start off on the power shrugs early and your traps are going to be ridiculous.

I just did 455 for 3 sets of 10 and my traps look decent. Once I get to 500 I hope they're retarded looking. Then I'll have to buy more weight
>>
>>40630907
I can tell you right now without a doubt that powercleans are byfar the best for traps, not to mention excellent for grip strength if if don't just drop the bar
>>
>>40630907
Try Craigslist
>>
>>40630907
Make sure to hit your erectors too, bro.
>>
>>40633500
Is it just me, or do those high pulls look like shit (for actual snatch improvement)? It looks like deadlift lockout+upright rows instead of an actual snatch pull.

Eh, they ain't so bad. Think anout it for a sec. They cook, they clean, and if they get on your nerves you don't feel guilty about roughing em up a little.

And if they call the cops, you can just say "officer, cmon. Who you gonna believe? Me or some dude in a wig?
