Everyone needs more hip mobility, especially lifters. Here are several ways to get it.

Build more muscle by holding the top dumbbell isometrically between reps.
Shrugs are great, but most lifters only do them vertically. They can also be done horizontally to hit different areas of the traps and back.
The bench press and the overhead press require strong forearms and stable wrists. This bodyweight exercise helps with both.
Place your elbows on a bench and allow a bit of bending in the knees for better activation and results.
This bent-knee variation works best for most people because it keeps the hip flexors from taking over.
Make the ab rollout even better by lifting your feet up. This takes the hamstrings out of the movement and makes your core work harder.
