Why did having huge traps go in and out of fashion so quickly?

Why did having huge traps go in and out of fashion so quickly?

People used to obsess over traps in the mid 2010s (I’ve been lifting since the 2000s) and I don’t remember people caring about specifically getting huuuge traps until the mid 2010s and then it sort of just faded away quickly

Why did this pop up and why did it die out so fast?

    i lold when prince andrew said he started lifting because he wanted big traps. it sounded so absurd but apparently that was a real thing among guys back then.

    I think most people on this board are bullshitters and don’t care about stuff like this and are at least 30lbs overweight and are trying to look jacked and are naive to realize they’re never gunna make it

    gymcels like Alex Leonidas pushed it building huge traps in 2015-2017 when that whole “natural community” shit started and people wanted to try replicate steroid results but remaining natural, people start doing stuff like rack pulls to build their traps

    I think what happened is it actually worked, but people realized having big traps doesn’t look aesthetic, especially when you don’t have huge deltoids, but also because it can cause sleeping issues if you have bit upper traps

    I would also bet that lots of guys got kicked out of their gym doing rackpulls, or they just hurt their lower back doing heavy shrugs

      this happened to me but i guess thats the price you pay for being a powershitter in a public gym and wanting to improve your lockout by doing rackpulls. the exercise is a complete meme but its fun as frick tho.

        the only thing you need to "improve your lockout" is to stop rounding your back to compensate for weak glutes, adductors, and hamstrings.

    if you're hobby bodybuilding, big traps only work with broad shoulders + low trap insertions, otherwise they make you look worse

        basically if your traps are attached high on your neck, growing them will give you a sloppy look, making you look narrower, but if they're attached low to your neck, you will still have that wide look even when they pop out

                guys who have tiny traps but developed other parts of their body look really odd and weird

                this kind of physique is attained from pure calisthenics or being a machine gay and never using freeweights. FPS Russia is an example of this. this gay took roids and only did machines and his traps are tiny

                he has sufficient meat in his traps, it's just low insertions, which is what the thread is about

                Having huge traps is directly correlated by having high test. It's why roiders ALWAYS have enormous traps. Even with no training, you should as a high test man have pronounced traps.
                My guess is test levels have been dropping with every generation. Since zoomers have less test than generations prior, the appeal of huge traps goes down.

                no, it's related to androgen receptor density, not high test, you can have high test and shitty response to androgens, plenty of people who still look like shit after roids, but you're correct that delts/traps are usually most androgenic and respond well to gear

                My main point being that having massive traps and/or shoulders is a very good indication you are high test.

        They're already trained, from rows or deadlifts or whatever you do.

        that's thoracic extension, tshirt makes it easy to hide that bottom of chest is pushed forward, thus moving forward bottom of scapulae and rocking top of it back, pulling shoulder back and aparat and traps relaxed back down - just push bottom of chest to front and see for yourself - u may feel uncomfy in upper belly at first
        if this mofo hunches forward, protracts shoulders traps will eat his neck

        Much like with non-white skin, dyed colored hair, voting for Biden, non-ear piercings, and pro-LGBTQ views, tattoos are an immediate signifier to the world that nothing about you should ever be misconstrued as having any value whatsoever. I am more likely to consider the thoughts, feelings, opinions, and humanity of a stinky homeless person high on fentanyl than I am a person with tattoos.

    Traps and neck actually respond quite well to training for most people and have a low risk of injury and the muscles actually change your silhouette even when you have your clothes on, but sure there's a risk you look goofy.

      You would think taking steroids would grow your traps anyway because I guess high amount of receptors or shit but not always it seems. I guess it requires you to carry at least something in your hands or stuff.
