Killer Trap and Shoulder Workout

You have surely heard of the triple threat with regard to shoulder development? Well, if not it refers to the proper targeting of the anterior, lateral (also referred to as the medial head) and posterior musculature of the shoulder region, which gives you that rounded and thick appearance in your front poses, and added definition in your back poses.

Wide, thick shoulders are also the starting point for the ultimate V-taper physique, and big shoulders that carry sweeping lines will also accentuate your triceps and ensure you have good proportion and symmetry between your delts and biceps.
But for good measure and the most comprehensive workout, we have thrown in our best moves to build your trapezius muscles, for a thick neck and sweeping lines that run into your shoulders.
