Overview

The lever shrug is an exercise that targets the traps, or the muscles that run along the back of your neck and shoulders. It is performed by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a weight plate in each hand. With your arms extended straight down at your sides, shrug your shoulders up as high as you can, then slowly lower them back down. Repeat this for 10-12 repetitions.
