Default Re: Tip of the Week: Traps down for good posture

you bring up an interesting observation. Your traps are actually required to stabilize you during curling movements so that is actually ok, they are an exception to the rule due to the direction of resistance [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

An interesting fact, if you injure your trap to the point of not functioning properly did you know that you would actually lose almost all your mass in your bicep as well? Traps are very important for stabilizing during curling movements.
(i remember hearing about a guy who injured his right trap and lost all his bicep mass as well, he had an 18inch left arm and a 12inch right arm lol).

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
