Barbell Shrugs

Barbell shrugs develop the trapezoid muscles.

Stand straight, grasp a barbell with an overhand grip and hold it At arms length out in front of you.  Lift or shrug your shoulders as high possible, attempting to touch your ears with them.  Pause for a moment at the top for a good hard crunch, then lower the weight, slowly, back to starting position.

There are a lot of shrug machines you can try for a change.  Also if you want to Go really heavy, place a barbell on a low Support using a Squat rack, this way you can go really heavy without having to Take the barbell off of the floor.
