Overview

They are responsible for shrugging the shoulders, rotating the scapulae, and extending the neck, The band shrug is a simple exercise that can be performed with a resistance band. To do a band shrug, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a resistance band in each hand. With your arms extended in front of you, shrug your shoulders up as high as you can. Hold the position for a second, then slowly lower your shoulders. Repeat for 10-12 repetitions, The band shrug is a great exercise for strengthening the traps and improving posture.
