Scapular Pull-Up Exercise:
If you want to increase your traps strength and also size, a variation of the regular pull-up known as the scapula pull-up is a great exercise for the trapezius muscle group!
Similarly to some of the other traps exercises, the scapular pull-up will improve the overall strength and size of the traps and its surrounding muscles.

Scapular Pull-Up Exercise Instructions:
Target Muscle: Trapezius (Traps)
Exercise Type: Strength
Follow these instructions below for another unique but greatly effective trap exercise. However you will need to have a rack bar or pull-up bar of some sort readily available.
Begin with a pronated grip on your rack bar or pull-up bar.
From a hanging position, you need to raise yourself up a few inches without using your arms. Do this by depressing your shoulder girdle in a reverse shrugging motion, depressing your shoulder blades.
Hold this for as long as you would like, we recommend around 3-10 Seconds, then slowly return to the hanging position.
