Trap / Upper Back Development

​Happy Friday!  Welcome to the Iron Made Gym Newsletter.  Our goal with this production is to share information with our unique community that will help you reach your goals. 

One of the most stubborn muscle groups to grow is the traps and upper back.  Sometimes we can get in a rut of performing a couple varieties of shrugs and throw in a rope face pull for upper back and think we are good to go.  The Conjugate Training system stresses the importance of strength in these areas as it directly effects the big three (Bench, Squat, and Deadlift).  By being stronger in these areas it will also help with posture and functional training. 

In the article ‘The Best Way To Build Traps, 13 Tips For Strong Traps’, T-Nation speaks on methods, techniques, and exercise assembled by wide range of professionals across the industry.  Enjoy the article here, and don’t forget, put it into practice:
