Traps

I have really short arms and can't really get hold of the traps machine @ my gym. I tried dumbell shrugs but hardly feel anything on them. Is there any good ways that really burns?

    Its not about the burn with traps (or anything else for that matter) Deadlifts and shrugs using a bar or dumbbells are all you need, keep it heavy and make sure form is good enough to get a full contraction (no bouncing up and down)

    Ditto.... I've not done any direct trap work for 2-3 years and they still remain one of my stronger features

    Heavy deads and barbell shrugs are the best movements for traps.

    Let it sink.... I can swim.

    You need to get away from this "feeling the burn" bollox or you wil be really selling yourself short in terms of gains!

    Shrugs on a smith with the bar behind you are a good variation. You can use a lot of weight on traps and if you get to the point where there really burning chances are you arent strict enough on reps. Poor form with lots of weight aroung the shoulder joint/girdle will leave you with damaged shoulders. If you can feel them the next day then you know theyve been worked.
