Advanced Shrugs Superset

The traps are what makes or breaks your physique and this superset will help you activate every single part of that muscle group. I recommend you perform 3-4 sets of this in your back workouts or trap workouts and aim to do 10-12 reps of each exercise of the superset.

Rest 90 seconds between supersets but no rest between exercises in the superset!
