Welcome to the ultimate list of the best trap exercises for bane-like traps! The traps muscle is a very underrated muscle group that will help you look like a complete bad-a** and make your shoulders look bigger in the process!
The trapezius muscle sits right about your thick rhomboids muscle in your upper back, and technically there is a “lower traps” and “upper traps” area which you will find exercises for both below.
What really gives the trap muscle it’s impressive look however is height on the traps. When combined with upper chest development, this gives you awesome aesthetics when someone is facing you from the front.
The best way to use this list of the best trap exercises is take each one for a test drive and find which trap moves you feel the best activation and mind-muscle connection on. From here it will be easy for you to build your own trap workout routines. I encourage you to come back to this list frequently however, and add in new trap exercises every month to keep things fun!
If you need more ideas on full trap workouts and also full shoulder workouts as many people including myself train both together, be sure to check out our workouts section next. Let’s dive into it, and be sure to pay close attention to each of the videos so you have perfect form on all these lifts. Perfect form is extremely important when you are trying to get bigger traps!
