    Upright Rows for traps . What part works more -Shoudlers or Traps?

    What part of the body is working more: Traps or Shoulders.
    This exersise seems to work the whole shoulder muscle(rare, side, front) and traps.
    See, i do this exersies last, for my Trap/shoulder workout, and i dont really see if this exersise does any good.

    Works traps a bit more.

    Do hang cleans instead-they're FAR better.

    It depends on what grip you are using. Close grip hits the traps/anterior delts hard. While a wider grip will bring the medial delts into play and less on the traps. Leaning forward while doing these will bring the rear delts increasingly into play.

    I strongly recommend upright rows for those with curved clavicles due to the fact they hit the delts/traps simultaneously. I love this fact because they allow those with sloped shoulders to develop their delts and traps in proportion to one another. Yet when people with sloped shoulders tend to do direct work like shrugs their traps tend to diminish their delts.

    I love going past parallel when doing upright rows. My rc's get a massive pump with searing delicious pain. I feel like they are going to implode! Awesome stuff.

    hang cleans are nailing my traps nicely, even with relatively light weight.

    I did close grip upright rows for a year as part of my shoulder routine and built some nice traps from them. Nothing else for traps- no shrugs, no deadlifts, just upright rows. Very effective.

    Yeah close grip upright rows are very good for traps. Though I feel that close grip shrugs are even better for trap height at least.

    FWIW, I used to have one of those exercise tubes with two handles attached (it since broke) but I used to sometimes use it for upright rows, holding both handles together, hands touching so maximum close grip. Sometimes I also held a light db for added resistance and I rowed up over my head. Anyway, since it was so light it was very strict, with resistance both ways and I used to get a tremendous traps pump and soreness from doing those.

    it's a horrible movement - shoulder impingment - avoid it.
