Importance of Training your TRAPS

Training of the neck and trapezius is often ignored by many lifters.   Having a strong neck is necessary to prevent injuries and imbalances.  These muscles are key to good posture.   They are a stabilizing muscle group that pull the upper spine and shoulders into alignment.

The top exercises for trap training include:   Shrugs of all variations (barbell, dumbbell, smith machine);   Upright rows of all variations (barbell, dumbbell, cable);   Face Pulls.

The best time to train your traps is when you are working on back or shoulder muscles.
