How to perform Power Shrugs.

Quote:
Stand holding the barbell with an overhand grip just outside of shoulder-width. Slightly bend at the hips keep back straight and bar close to your body. As the barbell reaches just above knee level thrust hips forward forcefully. At the initiation of the rapid force, shrug your shoulders upwards powerfully, then return back to the starting position and repeat.
