What is the best exercise for my traps?
What in your opinion would be the best exercise for my traps?

I like deadlifts and power cleans. And farmer's walks. And Power Shrugs.

With questions like this you can ask 10 different people and get 10 different answers and none of them are wrong.
I use deadlifts, powercleans, and kirk karwoski rows for my traps. Previously I just used deads and strict shrugs. I think all of these movements are great for building the traps.

shrugs and deadlifts have been my staple. When i do 5x5 deadlifts i like to add 3 shrugs at the top for 5 deadlifts and 15 shrugs.

As my Deadlift and Squat increases my traps grow in proportion. They've never been bigger than currently.

I personally like deadlifts. It is a matter of opinion, you have to find what works the best for you.

Upright rows, for sure, along with heavy deads and power cleans.

All of the above

High Pulls is another good one.
