How to Barbell Shrug
Primary Muscles: Upper Body, Shoulders
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Grip the barbell with the hands prone (palms facing down) and space the hands shoulder-width. Slightly pull the shoulders blades back, keeping the spine and head in good posture. This is the starting position.
Elevate the shoulders toward the ears. Squeeze hard at the top and slowly lower the weight back to the starting position. Repeat the shrug for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
You should feel this working your arms, traps, upper back, and shoulders.
