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

    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.

    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
