How to do Standing Barbell Shrug

Shoulders & Traps Exercise Training Workout

Stand up to a barbell, with feet shoulder-width apart, and deadlift it up properly in order to prevent injury. With the barbell in hand with both palms facing toward your body, and head looking forward, back straight, abs tight, and feet planted, shrug the barbell up using your traps (bring your shoulders and traps up to your ears) keeping your arms fully extended (don't bend your arms). Do not roll your shoulders backward or upward to bring them up either. It should be brought up in a linear motion. Squeeze your traps at the top of the movement. Slowly bring your shoulders down in a linear movement until your arms are hanging down by your thighs again.
