I don't understand your logic.

Do you think women have special muscles that differ from men? That a man who knows how to gain muscle in his back and traps wouldn't know what to suggest to a woman looking to do the same?

Women don't know what they're doing. That's why they come to us.

I don't think women should train any differently than men.Period. Problem is women have been brainwashed into thinking we should for years!!

And even the ones that consciously try to stay away from that mentality still end up fagging around a lot of the time.

This is true ..same with the more cardio, the better mentality and I will admit I am guilty of this on occasion. I just have to reel myself back in.

Hmm...girl-specific back and traps advice...got some short people advice, if that helps? If you're doing db shrugs (or rows...but shrugs are worse for this), do not try to re-rack the db immediately after the set. Put it down on the floor or a bench, and then re-rack them one at a time...re-racking requires shrugging, a small bit of upright rowing or toe-raising, and moving the db away from the body, so not happening gracefully after a heavy set.

I have been trying to put on muscle in my back for 4 years now. I have often heard that to put on serious muscle you've got to get your body tricked into putting on muscle everywhere. This means that heavy squats and heavy deadlifts have got to be in your program. After that, rows, especially bent-over rows, should be included. For traps, I like any overhead presses. I especially feel it with push-presses.

P.S. The best advice for building the feminine physique has come from Thunder. I would value his advice far above anyone missing their Y chromosome.
