Plate Upright Rows work the traps through a full range of motion. These are great for supersetting with plate back rows! As a side note, these also build up your forearms and delts. Use this as a finisher to your delt or trap routine.

With your fingertips, using an overhand grip, hold an Olympic plate on its edge. Your hands should be extremely close to each other, almost touching in fact.

Stand straight up and allow the plate to hang in front of you. From this fully extended position, row upward until you get a peak contraction in your delts and traps.
