Barbell Shrug Behind The Back - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Assume an upright shoulder-width stance, holding a barbell behind your back with a slightly wide pronated grip. Use wrist straps for a better grip. Your arms should be fully extended, with the bar falling at the lower part of your rear. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Lift your shoulders as far up as you can without engaging the biceps or bending your arms. Exhale as you do this. Hold the contraction briefly, then inhale as you slowly lower the weight back to starting position.

Step 3

Repeat until you complete your set.
