This is a great exercise for the ego, all BB.com types should really try them out. :D

It appears that if you get the timing down you just have to do one shrug then the bar will whip the rest of them up as long as you pull a bit to keep things moving--what a novel concept.

The old say "just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it" applies here pretty well.

Heavy shrugs are normally done by people who can't deadlift heavy...that kind of thing is silly and dangerous, your risk to benefit ratio on that is extremely high. Pull a trap and see how your life changes.

So, basically, he was just bouncing his body so the bar would move...must be one hell of an exercise, i wonder why IA, has not tell me to try them!

Nice, his shoulders didnt even go up to raise the weight. Was more of a calf raise than anything else.

The flat billed hat probably helped him out a ton.

No doubt man. I just pulled my trap the other day and definatelly and have been bunged up for the rest of the week. 1 week sick, next week injured!
and i was only using 365 and can deadlift 500+ lol, so its not just using weight you can't deadlift, which boggles my mind why those types think that is a GOOD idea.. No matter what the weight, if you are fatigued and use even slight suboptimal form ( put leg drive into it and turned it into a power shrug) you can get injured. I haven't been able to move in 3 days

I love the sensationalist title too, "GUY SHRUGS 680 LBS--4.5X HIS OWN BODY WEIGHT!" Br00t4l! I saw some dude shrugging on the smith machine today, he couldn't have been more than 100 lbs, pulling 3 plates on each side.

But on a more serious note, is there a proper place for shrug work? I vaguely recall some Westside guys having it in here and there. Is that more of a grip strength thing than anything? Again, I may be seriously mistaken...

^ Some guys at Westside have stated shrugging has helped their bench numbers due to the increased strength in their upper back.

Haha awesome. I think 9 out of 10 people at my gym shrug like that.

matt Kroc has some crazy grip strength shrug videos of him doing high reps with I think nearly 700lbs?

that 'power shrug' looked about par for the course
