Wide-Grip Jump Shrug

The wide-grip jump shrug builds power in the shoulders and hips. It also builds size throughout the entire backside of the body.

    Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart with a barbell right up against your shins. Hinge at the waist and grab the barbell with an overhand grip that is wider than shoulder-width.

    Keep your core tight as you explode up and shrug the barbell as high as possible. From the top of the movement, slowly lower the barbell back down to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid rounding your back during the exercise to avoid injury. Instead, keep your chest up and core engaged throughout the entire exercise.
  • The majority of power should come from your hips. Avoid using your upper body to muscle the weight up and into place.
