When do you do them, back day, shoulder day, other? Curious to hear some thoughts.

I'll usually do them on my deadlift/back days.

I rotate them in and out on bench days.

I never do them. My traps get plenty of work from pulling and rowing movements.

I added them on in my bech days last meet cycle. I liked this as i could focus on them harder then just a walking through the motions on a long back or lower body workout

I do shrugs on my back day along with neck work.

I do heavy rack pulls but never, not even once, will I shrug.

IVe used them on back day, deadlift day, bench day, shoulder day. However you split it up, they have a place. I used to do them really heavy but now just do slow reps w db's.

Usually if my boss asks me something and I don't know the answer.

Quite an interesting. I never used to train them directly - just indirect work through deadlift, rows ect. I've actually tried adding them into my routines now, usually paired with some form of shoulder work so they are hit twice a week. I have added them in mainly because they were really lacking - looks kinda stupid because I have wide shoulders, wide back, no traps... ha ha
