I am actually really happy with my traps, as they were a pretty quick muscle to grow. Use a barbell, just keep throwing weight on there and shrug till you can't anymore. I was able to get a set of 10 @ 295lb shrugging before I ruined my shoulder.

Those 5x5 deadlifts should be killing your traps!

I wouldn't say that dead lifts kill the traps, but they definitely get worked.

cleans, over head press, and america kettle bell swings always hit my traps really hard.

Your workout looks like it should be good though. I think you should add the cleans in somewhere. Even if it's just a bunch of hang cleans one day a week.

Should I add it to day A or B? I'm still sore from first day. Those 5 working sets KILLED my legs (which I have neglected for way too long)

Anyways I'll be posting videos on my form so you can tell me how much of a noob I am lol

I might do it with the deads and press since they will use your traps too. You can just finish the day with 30 hang cleans in as little time as possible or something. I just love cleans so I could never leave them out again lol

And don't be worried about the form. I was a mess when I first started. It took so much research and help by people around here and youtube videos.

I know man, I read through the first 30 or so pages of your thread the other day. I feel like if I show my form on here and get help it will prevent injury physically (and to my ego hehe)

I wish I kept my form check on my cleans when I first started lol. It would have been funny to see.

There are far better exercises for pecs than DB pull-overs.

To do what? I'd keep everything constant and throw couple sets of those into the mix.

Not bad at all. Focus on keeping your chest up. It looks like you're a little flat on the initial lift. Also maybe lower the hips a tiny bit. People tend to drive them selves nuts over this lift and make things harder.

I'm going to agree with this. You look pretty good there Kush. I would drop the hips a bit more as suggested, but you look good overall.

A good tip I heard was fixate on a point on the wall in front of you thats slightly above shoulder level, and don't take your eyes off it. Keeping your chin up helps keep your chest up too.
