    Can I do shruggs one arm at a time?

    When I can't get to the gym and I gota use my own equiptment is it okay to do shruggs one arm at a time? See my dumbell set is only a 40lb set, and that means if I split it in between 2 dumbells its 20lbs each trap, but if I could stick all 40 on one dumbell and do each arm one at a time it would be twice the weight (which still aint much, but it's better than 20).

    yeah, you could do that, the weight's light enough that it won't throw you off kilter.

    yeah, and if you find you are off balance you can easily just do the sets with one arm clinging to a door jamb or something like that.

    i have done one armed shrugs a lot.
    but use a the tricep push down or cable cross machine to do it.
    i put the cable to the bottom and shrug. the principle is the same.

    I do hold onto a bar to keep my body stable.
