Time for some bodybuilding moves. On today’s menu: 240kg Shrugs with Dmitry Klokov. Get Yoked! Personally I like his Snatch Grip Swinging High Pulls a.k.a. “Trapi” better. Front View of Trapi with 122.5kg x5
Check out Donny Shankle’s post on Weightlifter’s Shrugs. Not for traps, but to facilitate the wrists turning over faster at the “ receive” command of a snatch and clean by utilizing the rotation of the bar. By forcing the wrists into flexion at the “finish” they will turn over faster into extension during the catch.
Got a new toy today. 23kg of beautiful steel. Now if only I could decide which grip to use for curls in the squat rack.
Here is what a deadlift day with Konstantin Konstantinovs looks like. Stuff like 350 kg x 5, 400 kg x 1 (and holding it) and trap bar deadlifts up to 370 kg.
Q: How does the beast himself, Konstantin Konstantinovs, train his grip? A: with a 350kg (771lb) fat grip (50mm) trap bar box deadlift.
