Holding the weight above your head as you shrug works your upper traps. this position also reduces the emphasis on your levator scapulae, which are often overworked. for many guys, this can lead to better posture, since these muscles are often imbalanced.
method: hold a barbell above your head with an underhand grip that’s about twice shoulder width. your arms should be completely straight. shrugyour shoulders as high as you can. pause, then reverse the movement back to the starting position.
