BE­HIND-THE-BACK SHRUG

Health & Nutrition - - MUSCLE GUIDE -

(Trapez­ius, up­per back) Sit on the edge of a bench, arms hang­ing straight be­hind you. Have some­one hand a bar to you, and grab it with your hands shoul­der­width apart or slightly wider, palms fac­ing back­ward. Keep­ing your back and arms straight, slowly raise your shoul­ders as high as you can. Pause, then slowly lower your shoul­ders. Watch Your Form: Raise and lower your shoul­ders only. Rolling your shoul­ders for­ward or back­ward at the top of the move is a waste of time and can place them at risk of im­pinge­ment or ro­ta­tor-cuff prob­lems over time.
