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.

  1. Begin with a pronated grip on your rack bar or pull-up bar.

  2. 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.

  3. Hold this for as long as you would like, we recommend around 3-10 Seconds, then slowly return to the hanging position.
