Sticking.

OK, I'll bite. This has been stickied for almost a year, so most people should know or have an opinion on:

Are Shrugs a shoulder or a back execise?

When exactly do you work traps? 1, 2, or 3 times a week?

I know I have no idea.

You can really work shrugs with either back or shoulders. I get strong trap pumps from overhead presses, but I also get good trap work with deadlifts and back work.

If you are deadlifting and overhead pressing there's really no need to work them with additional sets more than once a week unless you really enjoy lifts like power shrugs.

Your traps are on your back, so it's a back exercise, and frequency depends on the program.

I do shrugs on my Legs, Traps and Forearms day in a 4 day routine. Check my sig for more info.

Shoulders or back.

On a split most people work them on shoudler day because there is less volume on that day, compared to back (ie normal back day 12-16 sets, normal shoulders 9-12)....

They can be worked on either day. As I do a full body i hit them several times 3 days per week. They get hit with my OH Pressing, Rowing and deadlifting :)
