Proper Exercise Technique

Grab a set of dumbells. Hold them with your palms facing in toward your body. Shrug shoulders in an upward movement contracting your trap muscles. Lower slowly and repeat.

Tip: Don’t make the mistake of rolling your shoulders back as you shrug the weight up, as this could lead to an injury. Instead, you should simply shrug the weight straight up and down. Try to keep your arms completely straight rather than bending your elbows.
