Shrug Life

Shrugs are great if you want big traps. They're not so good if you want to create a stable shoulder, especially in ring-based movements. There's a lot of ring dips in the workout today, watch your shoulder position - if you're shrugging the shoulders up in to the ears, you've got an unstable and potentially dangerous position going on. Push the rings down, rotate the thumbs out (palms forward), and keep the elbows in tight to the sides.
