Quite honestly, when I get over 450 pounds, I can't use much momentum because the weight is simply too heavy.

Power shrugs for me would require a lighter weight - say 315 - focusing on explosiveness.

I like to do power shrugs with 225 or 315 as a burn at the end of a trap workout and do as many reps as possible.
