Smith machine shrug

The Smith machine shrug is an upper-body exercise targeting the traps (trapezius muscles). It is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of shoulder or trap-focused training.

Benefits

  1. Adds size and height to the traps
  2. Easier to overload, rack, and unrack than a barbell
  3. The bar moves on a track making it easier to get into position and control
