21 Tips to Build a Bigger, Stronger Back


Why Are The Upper Traps Muscles Important- (1)

#4 Why Are The Upper Traps Muscles Important?

The trapezius muscles or upper traps are the muscles that come out of the side of your neck. Think of Tom Hardy in Batman—Bane looked a hell of a lot more imposing than Bruce Wayne.

To ensure that your back not only looks bigger, but is actually stronger, you need impressive upper traps. The best exercises for bigger trap muscles are overhead or regular shrugs, Olympic lifts such as high pulls, power cleans and snatches. You will also find that heavy dumbbell farmer’s walks or walking on your hands can be beneficial, but don’t rush to do the strange moves first. Focus on the motion in your shrugs while holding heavy weight in your hands and you’ll see results.
