Dumbbell Shrug for Men
- Grab a pair of dumbbells and let them hang at arm's length next to your sides, your palms facing each other.
- Shrug your shoulders as high as you can. Pause in the up position, then slowly lower the dumbbells back to the start.
Tip Compared to the barbell shrug, the dumbbell shrug places less stress on your shoulder joints. That's because your shoulders don't have to rotate to hold the bar. This keeps them more stable as you perform the movement.
