Sit and shrug

Seated-Dumbbell-Shrug-The-Optimal-You[1]Today’s shoulder and back exercises had high overload exercises which will surely leave me quite sore tomorrow.  The alternating one arm wall handstands are tough as hell, especially transitioning between each arm without coming off the wall.

I sort of like doing shrugs from the seated position.  It feels like I isolate the traps more since there can be no contribution from your lower body for extra momentum.
