I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.
Stand with your legs slightly apart. You’re in front of the barbell which is on the floor or on a support :
Take the barbell with a pronated grip or a over-under grip if the weight is heavy. The spacing of your hands is your shoulder’s width.
Your arms are relaxed with you back straight and your abs squeezed. Shrug your shoulders.
This exercise works the upper trapezius and a little bit deltoids.
When you lift heavy with a over-under grip, it’s advisable to change the hand grip to each set to balance the trapezius. Do a set with the right hand with a pronated grip and the left hand with a supinated grip and the next set the right hand with a supinated grip and the left hand with a pronated grip.
