(1) Trapezius: The
trapezius is a flat, triangular muscle that extends out and down
from the neck, then down between the shoulder blades.
Function: To lift
the entire shoulder girdle, draw the scapula up, down, and to
either side, and help turn the head.
Training the Traps and Upper
Although not one of the
more desirable goals for most bodybuilders, a completely developed
bodybuilder will not ignore any muscle groups. As one of the more

and unproportional, or your shoulders look narrower as your traps
will develop vertically and not horizontally. However, your traps
are very important to keep fit and strong, like all other muscle
groups, and a good bodybuilding regiment will include them, even if
only on a small scale.
To develop the trapezius,
