    Any tricks of the trade for training traps, Skip? Besides the obvious "full ROM, don't go too heavy and cheat", or "just deadlift heavy" type advice? Thanks

      Traps are meant to hold some heavy ass weight. Mostly in an isometric way. Row heavy, deadlift heavy, press heavy etc....

      I haven't seen too many guys build big ass traps but just shrugging.

      Johnnie Jackson is a perfect example. Those traps are massive. Very unproportionate to everything else. Biggest in the ifbb probably. He lifts heavy as hell and competed or competes in powerlifting.

      Think about then just bearing weight and not moving weight on their own. Can you build respectable traps by shrugging? Yes, but holding heavy weight in rows and deads is better.


      Skip, we have heard of guys training calves everyday. Thoughts? If you like the idea because they recover so well, do you recommend progressively increasing frequency of calf training?

        That was exactly the answer I didn't want to hear because I already do all those things lol! As well as shrug too!

          Not much else you can really do haha

          One other thing you can start doing is maybe hanging cleans.

            True. You know, it's not even that my traps are THAT bad, it's just that the world would be a much better place if they were bigger lol.....

              I honestly don't believe that shrugs are all that great for full, thick trap development. I think deads and heavy bent rowing and tbars are better over the long term. I dropped shrugs about 5 years ago and have only seen a slight change, if that, since.

                Great article Skip. One question that I hope you can clarify for me. Lets use the standing calf raise machine for this example. Should I be pushing up on the repetition with my toes or the balls of my feet? Or a different area? Same with the stretch part of the repetition. Toes or balls of the feet? Some times one feels better than the other and sometimes doing both feels great too.

                  Idk about you but when I unintentionally use my toes and curl my foot a little as I press I end up feeling exhaustion on the bottom of my feet well before I feel anything in my calves.

                        Train them as frequently as you can recover if you are trying to bring them up, yes.

                            Thank you. EliteFTS likes the balance I have lately between "fun" stories/rants and informational type articles so I will continue to keep that balance in 2016 of both pissing off AND informing.

                              I like that you always sound so NORMAL in the way you write, you know like your normal everyday guy who likes training as a hobby, but who actually has a life too.

                              In the real life you might be wierd as hell, but the way you write sounds good humoured and normal anyway.....
