Dumbbell Shrugs

Muscle Groups Worked:


How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Begin in the standing position, with your feet shoulder width apart, and your elbows tucked against the side of your body.

2) With dumbbells, shrug your shoulders in an upward fashion as if trying to touch your shoulders together behind your neck.

4) Keeping your arms extended the entire time, hold the contraction at the top, and slowly return to the starting position.

Notes: You should NOT: bend your arms excessively, use your legs for momentum, or swing the weights in any way.  This is a great workout for mass on your upper traps, those mini-shoulders!
