Are traps closely linked with shoulders?
The one muscle group I want to grow now more than anything else is my delts. Trouble is with any shoulder exercise I do, even over head presses, I feel more of a burn in my traps somehow. This is especially so with lateral raises.
Doubtlessly my shoulders have grown since I've started doing more delt focussed exercises, but so have my traps, which were disproportionately large to my shoulders in the first place.
With the lateral raises, should I keep my arm dead straight with a lighter weight, while raising slowly, to avoid any shrugging of the shoulders. notice when people go heavy with lateral raises, they end up shrugginf their shoulders a great deal.
