Tip: Olympic Deadlift

This is a hybrid between deadlifts and the traditional Olympic clean pull.

Clean pulls are the best way to build your traps. You can use a wide grip and change the variation to a snatch pull. You can do them from a variety of rack heights. And you can do them with a pause at the top (for half a set or the whole set) to increase trap activation.
