Training - Traps

Last night - Upright Rows - 65 pounds x 8 sets of 20
Swiss Ball Crunch - 5 sets of 20

Will squat later today.


  1. Does that count as a two-a-day? Hahaha.

  2. Hi Paul,

    I missed the Q&A a few days ago but I have a question and was wondering what you thought about soy. I've tried using the search function and I think you said "it's disgusting".

    I'm currently taking 3 soy protein drinks per day right now and have been doing so for a month. I currently live in Australia and protein powder is probably at least 1.4-2x more expensive than the States. Do you see anything wrong with taking soy?

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Hi! You mentioned that you're doing this routine while getting leaner. Have you found that focusing on a muscle gruop like this, and down prioritizing everything else, can lead to mass gains even though you're in a calorie deficit? I know I read someone recommended this, also regarding traps, when trying to get lean! Good stuff!

  4. Howard - Soy is not a good source of protein and it's been documented that it increases estrogen in your body.

    You'd be better off taking that money and putting it into tuna if the extra protein is what you are after.

    Alex - Yes. I've done this before with other muscle groups. Even in a calorie deficit you can improve a specific "bodypart". Generally smaller one like biceps or triceps or calves, traps, etc. not things like quads or lats, etc.
