  • S H R U G S  (XERTUBE)
    Muscles worked: Trapezius

    Instructions:
    Wrap the xertube once around your feet to increase the tension. Position your feet on the xertube a little wider than shoulder width apart and your back straight. Keeping your arms fully extended at all times, shrug the bar up using your trapezius muscles as far up as you can go. Pause and hold there for one second,contracting your trapezius. Slowly reverse the movement and repeat.
    Note Keep your back straight throughout the entire movement.
    Dont's:
    Don't jerk the handles up. Use a slow controlled movement. Don't rotate you shoulder back at the top of the movement. This is an older form of performing shrugs that has been found to not add any benefit to the exercise.

    Alternate exercises: Upright rows XT
