For these 2 reasons, I have become the #1 fan of pendlay's. Getting better at pull ups and shrugs didn't hurt either.
I've recently switched to Pendlay Rows. Liking them so far. Hopefully, they'll "carry over" to various other things, particularly deadlifts (of course, strength in general will do that, but y'know what I mean.)
And indeed, heavy shrugs and pullups/chins ftw as well.
Good article btw, JB.
