✅ Want BIG Traps?! 👌🏻
🙏🏼 Traps are the physical manifestation of hard work. Yes, you could build enviable traps without ever hoisting a barbell, but not without a lot of hard labor.
Massive traps are obvious regardless of clothing. Abs? Not so much. In fact, you can meet a lot of people that get social media attention because of their abs, but in-person wearing clothes, you can't even tell they lift. You may think abs represent a healthy body, but abs aren't always achieved through health or hard work. You can easily find pictures of anorexics, bulimics, and drug addicts sporting abs. Lol but I don't think you'll be seeing the "meth-head core routine" popping up in the near future💉.
People can have abs who don't train at all. They're just genetically blessed to carry a lower percentage of body fat. No work, no dieting, no cardio. Abs for days.
🤷🏽♂️ Make no mistake, I think abs are cool too. But dieting alone can get you a set of abs without ever setting foot in a gym or weight pit, which is why traps are a far better representation of hard training.Lots of hard-working lifters are trap deficient. I was a member of Team No-Traps for a long time myself. It drove me nuts. I did all the regular shit everyone says to do in order to get big traps, and it just didn't put traps on me.
"Do heavy shrugs."
🙃 And that's about where the line ends for those predisposed to growing traps easily. Those on Team No-Traps often have broader shoulders and longer clavicles, making it much more difficult to build a set of traps that appear impressive. There are exceptions to these rules, but this has been my standard observation.
Simply relying on shrugs and deadlifts is just not enough to build an impressive set of traps lots of guys. Shrugs are awesome for developing the upper part of the traps, but if you want a set of traps that looks like a couple of hams on your back, you can't neglect the mid and lower traps, along with the rhomboids.
Try these out and focus on the your contractions ✅. Credit @schoolofmuscle
