I need a good trap exercise(but I'm picky). I don't do deadlifts now, I don't like upright rows and shrugs. What I do like to do (i've only done it once) is hold a lot of weight for a count of like 20 seconds. Has anyone ever done this as an exercise? I know it has a name. I can't imagine it being good for the lower back though. I guess the best way for me to tell if it hit my traps is evaluate my traps when I wake up tomorrow morning.
