Shrug Drop Set 585, 495, 405

12 plates x 6 (585 lbs), 10 plates x 5 (495 lbs), 8 plates x 5 (405 lbs). Because this was the last set and a drop set, I allow myself to get a little sloppy with the form.

This is heavy if you do it with the correct form. I like drop sets because it lets me fully fatigue the traps without having to go super heavy. I find I get decent strength in my traps by pre-fatiguing with very high rep sets before the drop sets.

I do this at the end of the shoulder workout.
