    well you already kno that you can do

    barbell shrugs (front and behind)
    dumbbell shrugs (front and side)

    you can do upright rows with a close grip and that will hit the front portion of the traps

    deadlift
    upright row
    barbell row

    Im a big fan of upright rows and find the best results with shrugs in the 10-15 rep range.

    After adding snatches to my shoulder routine I am finally starting to see some progress with my traps.

    hangs and dumbell shrugs are what i work in, i think deads and rear shoulder raises also work them a bit. and i have been wanting to do barbell rows more too jeeze.
