This exercise will work on your trapezius. Don’t hesitate to have a look on my other article “The main muscle groups of your body” if you don’t remember where the trapezius is located.
How to perform the “Dumbbell Shrug”:
Standing with a straight torso. Hold a dumbbell in each of your hands by your side, with your palms turned towards you.
Raise your shoulders as high as you can, then slowly lower them down up to your starting position and repeat. Controlling the bar during its way down will be harder but will work more efficiently on your trapezius.
If it is the first time that you are doing this exercise, I would recommend you to get used to the movements by doing Dumbbell Shrugs firstly without weights.
