    shrugs and lats

    Is there an indirect load put on the lats by doing shrugs? I was doing them earlier, and I noticed my lats begining to pain, as if they were being worked by the exercise.

    Probably to a very small extent.you may have gotten a pump from increased blood supply to the upper back from the shrugs.
