Barbell Shrug

Barbell Shrug

Classification

Utility: Basic
Mechanics: Isolated
Force: Pull

Instructions

Preparation

Stand holding barbell with overhand or mixed grip; shoulder width or slightly wider.

Execution

Elevate shoulders as high as possible. Lower and repeat.

Comments

Since this movement becomes more difficult as full shoulder elevation is achieved, height criteria for shoulder elevation may be needed. For example, raising shoulders until slope of shoulders becomes horizontal may be considered adequate depending upon individual body structure and range of motion with lighter weight.
