THere are plenty of trap lifts including shrugs, back shrugs, and wide grip upright rows. You use your traps in a lot of compounds though such as rows,pull ups, and deadlifts.

Do lots and lots of dips, those will work your entire upperbody but use your traps more when you do them. And hold once you get low, then up, hold when your low, and repeat

You don;t use your traps for dips. You use front delts,chest,triceps, and forearms.

Loads up two dumbells with as much weight as you can carry. Then hold them and walk around for as long as you can. Works for me, and is simplistic as hell.

Shrugs are the most effective workout for Traps.

shrugs are the most effective, but switch it up between barbells, cables. I usually do upright rows with both types and it works for me. you can also do reverse flys.

my favorite overall shoulder exercise though are arnold dumbbell presses -> [Link View Has Been Removed. Click Here To Unlock This Content.]

works out your entire shoulder range including your traps. don't forget to work out your neck!
